Michigan Tech to Offer Doctorate in Physical Therapy, in Partnership with CMU

Program coming in June 2014, pending approval by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education

Michigan Tech and Central Michigan University (CMU) are partnering to offer CMU’s doctorate of physical therapy program at Michigan Tech, to help meet a critical need for additional physical therapists in the Upper Peninsula.

This doctoral program will offer students an innovative distance-learning format. The lectures and laboratory experiences will be presented on CMU’s campus by CMU faculty and transmitted live to Michigan Tech through interactive technology. CMU faculty will be onsite at Michigan Tech to coordinate clinical programs and supervise physical therapy labs. Clinical education experiences will take place primarily at medical facilities in the Upper Peninsula.

Enrollment for the inaugural class will begin in the summer of 2013, with classes starting in June 2014, pending accreditation review by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education.
