Our top-ranked physical therapy doctoral program recruits and selects highly-qualified individuals from the civilian sector to join the military and become officers in the US Army or the US Navy. Our program also selects applicants from within the active duty and reserve forces to transfer into our program from other military occupational specialties. Following basic officer initial entry training, these officers engage in 30 months of entry-level physical therapy training to receive the doctorate of physical therapy degree (DPT). Upon graduation, our graduates are well-prepared to serve in two unique professions – as an active-duty officer and as a military physical therapist.
This military physical therapy program is located at the historic Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas and is the Home of Military Medicine. The Army – Baylor University DPT program is proud to be a part of the Army Medical Center of Excellence who shares the mission to produce active duty, commissioned physical therapists who are clinician-scientists and leaders prepared for worldwide military health system practice. Outstanding clinical sites nearby include San Antonio Military Medical Center, the Center for the Intrepid, Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center and other excellent sites.
The purpose of this site is to provide prospective DPT students information on our CAPTE accredited DPT program. It also gives information to current military physical therapists and alumni with a resource about continuing education courses sponsored by the Army, Navy or Air Force.
The Army-Baylor University DPT program is a top-ranked physical therapy school committed to “producing clinician-scientists and leaders of tomorrow.” Through excellence in academics and clinical education, we select and train highly-qualified individuals to become active duty military physical therapists.
Since 1922, the US Army has trained physical therapists to meet the needs of injured soldiers. In 1971, the United States Army and Baylor University partnered to establish and conduct a graduate-level, physical therapy training program for the armed forces. Since that time, this program has continuously adapted to meet the physical therapy needs of the armed forces through excellence in academic coursework, clinical education, research and professional development of uniformed physical therapists.
