Earn Your Spot
Like many graduate programs in the health professions, getting into a top-notch physical therapy (PT) program is a challenge with a great reward. To meet that challenge, you need strong undergraduate preparation. You’ll get that at Guilford.
As a Pre-Physical Therapy student you may major in any discipline, including Health Sciences, as long as you complete the necessary pre-requisite courses for PT school. You will work closely with your advisers to design an individualized course of study. This allows you to complete the required science and social science courses to prepare for you for admission to your chosen PT program.
Health Science majors also take the Health Science Seminar, a course designed to help you with the graduate school application process, from preparing your personal statement to interview tips and financial planning. During the course, Guilford alumni who are currently in or recently graduated from graduate programs in the health professions often come back to share their experiences with current students. This class should be taken the spring before you plan to apply to PT school.
