Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy from Marymount University

Rehab Essentials is excited to announce it has partnered with the Marymount University to offer a cost-effective transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy (tDPT) degree program that allows working professionals to complete the degree on their terms, on-line and on their time. Each course within the curriculum is designed to advance critical thinking to the doctorate level while building on clinical skills.

A transitional degree that maintains a life balance

Continuing to the doctoring level should not come at a sacrifice to family, career, or personal wellness. The tDPT degree at Marymount University allows you to balance work, life, and career advancement to help you achieve your professional goals. Courses are online and on your time. You can view and review them anytime within a 15-week semester. Course assignments can be completed any time prior to the deadline and an active discussion forum promotes peer review, professional growth, networking and collaboration to improve your delivery of patient care. All but one course is online. There is only one on-site seminar held in Arlington VA. This on-site seminar is one weekend long and allows for face-to-face connection with faculty members and enhances your opportunities for personal networking with classmates.

The e-learning education format allows Bachelor’s and Master’s educated physical therapists to advance to the doctoral degree while keeping in mind the budgetary and time constraints of a working health professional.
