Pre-Physical Therapy
Advisor: Christopher Beachy

Physical Therapy has become a 6-7 year curriculum that results in award of a DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy) in most programs in the United States, including the University of North Dakota. Our pre-physical therapy program has been developed to articulate with the UND program. Students typically complete a degree at Minot State University, and make application in the Fall Semester of their final year.

In addition to the pre-physical therapy coursework, students must volunteer and/or intern with a physical therapy department. Admission to PT programs is highly competitive. In 2011, the UND program received over 200 applications for 52 student positions. Only students with a minimum 3.60 grade point average were considered for interviews. The UND program may soon require that applicants take the GRE as part of the admissions process. Specific questions about the UND program can be submitted to Dr. Renee Mabey (, 701-777-2831).

Listed below are the Minot State University courses that satisfy the pre-physical therapy curriculum at UND:
