Physical Therapy
Students interested in pursuing graduate studies in physical therapy are urged to major in biology, or physical education.  Since different schools may require or recommend specific courses, a student who wishes to pursue physical therapy must plan his/her proposed course sequence in close consultation with his/her faculty advisor and with the department’s chairperson.  After having satisfactorily completed the general biology prerequisite, students are urged to take biology electives from the following list: Biology 306, 309, 319, 441, 443, 445, and 475.

The College has a cooperative 3-3 arrangement with New York Medical College, which enables College of Mount Saint Vincent students to earn their baccalaureate degree plus a doctoral degree in Physical Therapy after six years of study.  Students who meet the New York Medical College criteria for admission to this physical therapy program will spend the first three years of study at the College and the final three years at New York Medical College at Valhalla, NY.  Students should request additional information from the Biology Chair.  Final admission decisions are made by the Admissions Office of  New York Medical College.
