The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Program at California State University, Northridge accepts international applicants who meet qualifications for entry.
Our DPT Program is entry-level and is not appropriate for those who are already trained as physical therapists. It is designed for individuals who want to become eligible for licensure as a physical therapist within the United States (U.S.) and who have completed at least a Bachelor’s Degree. Even if you are a trained PT in another country, you must meet and complete all of same requirements as all applicants.
