HappyGrace Posted March 11, 2012 Share Posted March 11, 2012 (edited) Dd is thinking of physical therapy as a possible career choice, so I was looking into it and I see that as of 2017 everyone will need the DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy degree). Does that mean you have to get a Master's first (which I saw was 2 1/2 yrs) and THEN the DPT, which is three yrs? Or does the DPT supercede the Master's-in other words, you finish your bachelor's and go straight into the DPT? Because if it is 5 1/2 yrs after the bachelor's, that is just way too much schooling (almost as much as a doctor!) for that type of career and she would prbly not want to do that. Thanks! ETA: from my lame googling, it looks like you just need the bachelor's and then the DPT? Edited March 11, 2012 by HappyGrace Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
