Undergraduate Pre-Physical Therapy Scholars Program (NUPPT-SP)

The Northwestern Undergraduate Pre-Physical Therapy Scholars Program (NUPPT-SP) is an early application program to the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) in the  Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences, Feinberg School of Medicine for high-achieving Northwestern University undergraduate students with a demonstrated commitment to a career as a physical therapist. Northwestern University students are reviewed for admission during their 3rd undergraduate year for matriculation into the department after completing their undergraduate degree. 


Elizabeth Sayers, the first student to be accepted into NUPPT-SP, says "Many students don't even know about the profession or whether they might like it, and I believe that this program can serve as a vehicle for educating those students about this career." MORE
