You may add pre-physical therapy (PPPT) as a second major (not a primary major), providing you with Email messages from the program about scheduling of group advising meets as well as meetings of the Physical Therapy Student Association.

The program will schedule group advising sessions both autumn and spring semesters.  Every September a meeting is scheduled for all UM juniors, seniors, and post-baccalaureate students planning on completing the admission process in the folowing two years.  In early October and early April, meetings are scheduled for students planning on making application to the program in the future.

Thank you for your interest in our program – always check our web site for updates. We look forward to working with you in developing your physical therapy interests.
