Physical Therapy

Mission Statement

The mission of the Nova Southeastern University Physical Therapy programs is to develop doctorally prepared practitioners in a rich learning environment that is interdisciplinary and culturally diverse. Technology is used to enhance teaching and to cultivate a learning community that transcends time and distance.

Graduates are prepared to practice legally, ethically, and autonomously and are recognized as practitioners of choice in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of movement-related dysfunction, and in the promotion of health and wellness.

The physical therapy programs foster clinical reasoning, life-long learning, and critical inquiry that integrate both evidence and expert practice. Faculty and students are committed to serving all community populations, including the medically underserved and uninsured, through service learning and clinical education experiences.
