IMPORTANT: These courses are intended to help you finish your pre-requisites for CU-Denver’s Physical Therapy program. This is NOT considered a major or a minor at UCCS.

Physical therapy is a health profession whose practitioners are involved in the treatment of abnormalities of the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems. Persons who are disabled as a result of pain, disease, injury or developmental delay are evaluated by a physical therapist who then plans and administers an appropriate therapeutic program. Rehabilitation of individuals with cardiac or pulmonary disease also involves physical therapy in the recovery process. The physical therapy program at the University of Colorado is a Doctor of Physical Therapy curriculum.

The application process is completed online through the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center Physical Therapy Program website: http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/education/degree_programs/pt/Pages/PT.aspx.
