Lebanon Valley College Hosts Physical Therapy Major Day for Prospective Students

— ANNVILLE — High school students interested in studying physical therapy at Lebanon Valley College are invited to attend Physical Therapy Major Day April 12. This program will introduce students to faculty and current PT students, and will outline the structure of the academic program. Campus tours will also be available.

The physical therapy curriculum at LVC is based on the American Physical Therapy Association’s “A Normative Model of Physical Therapist Professional Education” and the “Guide to Physical Therapist Practice.” The program follows the guidelines established by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).

In addition to pre-professional courses in biology, chemistry, physics, statistics, sociology, psychology, and English, there is a significant liberal arts component to the program. All students will gain substantial clinical experience at regional and national healthcare organizations. Graduates of the six-year (3+3) program will receive a bachelor of health science degree and a Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.) degree.

LVC received initial full accreditation for the physical therapy program from CAPTE in 2006 and reaffirmation of full accreditation status in November 2011 through December 2021. Lebanon Valley physical therapy graduates have had 100 percent board licensure exam pass rates and 100 percent job placement rates since the program’s founding.
