Doctor of Physical Therapy/B.S. 3+3 Program with Widener University

The Cooperative 3+3 Program with Widener University leads to a Bachelor of Science degree from Elizabethtown College and a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree from Widener University. In this program, students spend three years at Elizabethtown College fulfilling general education Core, the Pre-Physical Therapy curriculum, and the requirements of the Biology major. If accepted by the cooperating institution, students spend three more years at Widener University. Students may apply for acceptance into Widener University’s 3+3 DPT program during the fall semester of their junior year as an undergraduate at Elizabethtown. Interested students should consult with the Chair of HPAC before organizing their first-year fall class schedule as this program has specific additional requirements. After completing four years – three at Elizabethtown and one at Widener University – and acquiring at least 125 credits, the student is awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Elizabethtown College. After the student fulfills the remainder of the professional upper division program of clinical experience, the cooperative institution awards the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.
