Pre-Physical Therapy - Associate in Science
Physical Therapy is now a doctoral degree program at KU Medical Center. A student must earn a bachelor's degree in a subject area and meet the doctoral degree program requirements. Students need to be mindful of requirements needed at their transfer institution and should consult with a counselor before deviating from this program. The following courses are required, along with a bachelor's degree, by the University of Kansas Medical Center Doctoral Degree Program in Physical Therapy in order to apply for admission.
The Associate in Science Degree meets the Board of Regents Transfer and Articulation Agreement. A Student completing this program and transferring to a public university, therefore, "will be accepted as having satisfied the general education requirements of all Kansas public universities."
Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
