Why Choose Eastern?

Great reasons to come to EWU for your DPT degreepass rate

The curriculum is designed to prepare leaders for the profession of physical therapy whose focus of practice is to diagnose and manage movement dysfunction and enhance the physical and functional abilities of the clients they serve.

The curriculum consists of 11 sequenced quarters of full-time attendance.  Basic science courses and physical therapy skill courses are taught in the first academic year.  A clinical internship is offered in the summer after the first academic year.  In the second year clinical science courses integrate medical science knowledge through increasingly complex client scenarios.

Within the clinical science courses, students address client problems in a format consistent with the five elements of patient care (examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention) which are described in the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice.  These elements of patient care are used to address client problems in each of the four practice patterns which include patients with musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary or integumentary disorders.

Professional seminars are embedded in the curriculum, as are courses in evidence-based practice and clinical research. 

Students will successfully complete a comprehensive examination at the end of the second year to advance to the final three 10 week clinical internships.

Class sizes are restricted each year to ensure optimal student learning, thus enabling each student to receive comprehensive instructional and clinical experiences.
