The Stefani Doctor of Physical Therapy Program

Learn more about the DPT program The USM Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program is offered at the Saint Mary Main Campus in Leavenworth. 

USM trains competent practicing physical therapists by developing students' God-given potential while inspiring them to serve the needs of others. In keeping with the spirit of our founders, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, we recognize society's ever-growing need for more and better-trained health care professionals—and we work to meet that need through dynamic, hands-on programs designed to help our students excel.

A growing need

The doctor of physical therapy is increasingly becoming the industry standard for practicing physical therapists. Physical therapy is a high demand field, and there are few programs in the Kansas City area offering a doctor-level program. Fewer still feature USM's emphasis on developing core values.
