The PTT program provides simulated and live training in all aspects of physical therapy medicine to include functional human anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, clinical pathophysiology, and musculoskeletal physical therapy assessment and management.

Students receive an introduction to therapeutic exercises, procedures, modalities, neurological and medical disorders, physical therapy assessments, clinical management, professional communication, psychosocial issues in health care, and clinical experiences.
