Vision 2020 and the Vision Statement for the Physical Therapy Profession


As of 2014, all new US trained PTs graduate with their entry-level DPT degree. This was a part of Vision 2020, a directive from the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) for all physical therapy to be provided by Doctors of Physical Therapy by the year 2020 and continues with the new vision and guiding principles. 


The flexible, online format means courses can be taken at your leisure and the entire program can be completed in 16 months. You’ll graduate fully prepared to succeed as an autonomous practitioner in an evolving society and Health Care environment.

Topics covered as part of the curriculum include:

  • Foundations of Autonomous Practice
  • Prevention and Wellness
  • Diagnostic Imaging
  • Pharmacology and Pathophysiology

Qualified and experienced clinicians teach all online courses.

The online tDPT program is designed for all licensed physical therapists living in the United States, who may enter the program with a certificate, bachelor's, or master's degree in physical therapy.  Individuals who are living in the US but not yet licensed, OR who live outside of the US, need to contact us to determine their specific admission requirements.


NOTE: The Utica College tDPT curriculum does not provide the education that offers a path for US licensure as a physical therapist and/or a Visa to practice physical therapy in the US.
