Students interested in a career in physical therapy may complete a two or three year pre-professional program at NMU. The pre-physical therapy curriculum includes course work in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, psychology and the liberal arts. The program at NMU is designed to prepare the student for transfer to any of the several institutions in the region offering the remaining one or two years of academic and clinical course work. Since the prerequisites for admission into professional programs vary, students should select courses that will meet the requirements of the physical therapy program to which they may apply. Students interested in the pre-physical therapy program should contact the advisor in the Biology Department.
