Programs in Physical Therapy
The Columbia University Programs in Physical Therapy offer a dynamic, diverse environment with opportunities for entry-level and post-professional study, research and practice at our Irving Medical Center campus in New York City. Our entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy program educates students who wish to enter the field of physical therapy.
We are developing exciting post-professional programs. Our Performing Arts Fellowship, in partnership with New York's Westside Dance Physical Therapy, and Orthopedic Residency, which features partnerships with New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and SPEAR Physical Therapy offer opportunities to licensed physical therapists to develop advanced skills in a formal, structured environment.
The programs are part of the Department of Rehabilitation and Regenerative Medicine in the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City's Columbia University Irving Medical Center.
