Pre-Physical Therapy Option

The Pre-Physical Therapy (PT) program is designed for students who, after completing their bachelors degree, wish to become licensed physical therapists by entering an accredited PT school. Our curriculum includes the required courses for admission to the PT school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC).  

The Pre-PT program includes an internship at a physical therapy clinic where students gain hands-on experience and complete required observation hours. Faculty in the Department of Health and Kinesiology guide students through the PT school application process.
