Post Doctoral Options for Physical Therapy Students

The postdoctoral programs listed provide opportunities for research and education post academic doctoral degree (ie, PhD) for physical therapists. These postdoctoral opportunities are housed in academic institutions that either have physical therapist degree programs or are associated with a physical therapist degree program.

The listing of postdoctoral programs may not be all inclusive as new opportunities are developed, funded, or because APTA has not been notified of an existing program. Additional information about these programs may be obtained by contacting the program director or contact name listed.

To provide information about new postdoctoral programs available to physical therapists or to revise current information, please contact Academic Services at or call 800/999-2782, ext 8012.

Disclaimer: Inclusion on this list of programs does not indicate approval or endorsement by APTA or the accreditation of these programs of study by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).
