Jefferson College of Rehabilitation Sciences
The Jefferson College of Rehabilitation Sciences brings together Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Athletic Training, Speech and Language Pathology. Our goal is to provide programs that are unique in terms of educating students to provide high-quality care that will integrate people back into their communities.
The College of Rehabilitation Sciences is proud to be home to two programs ranked by U.S. News & World Report: Occupational Therapy was and the Department of Physical Therapy. Both programs offer students opportunities to participate in research, clinical, and educational experiences.
Earn your Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and your Doctor of Physical Therapy in an accelerated program in less time than it would take to complete both degrees separately. Upon graduation, you will be prepared to sit for the National Physical Therapy Examination. Jefferson’s Physical Therapy (PT) Program is one of the most respected PT programs in the region. Students from around the country come here to experience a positive, collaborative learning environment that contributes to success.
