Welcome to Rutgers SHP Doctor of Physical Therapy Programs

Physical Therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. PT’s examine each individual and develop a plan using treatment techniques to:

  • Promote the ability to move
  • Reduce pain
  • Restore function
  • Prevent disability

In addition to managing patient care, a PT is:

  • A Researcher
  • An Educator
  • A Consultant
  • An Administrator

There are two Entry-Level Doctor of Physical Therapy programs offered through Rutgers School of Health Professions. The PT Newark program is located on the main campus in Newark and the PT Blackwood program is located on the Blackwood Campus.
