Another doctorate program is launching soon at Charleston Southern University (CSU). The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program will begin accepting applications in July 2021, with the first cohort of 48 students set to begin in May 2022.
The full-time program is 120 credit hours and students will complete the DPT in two-and-a-half years. In addition to the traditional classroom experience, students must complete three 10-week full-time clinical experiences – which include inpatient, outpatient and student choice. Students are also required to participate in multiple service-learning projects.
