Program in Physical Therapy
Mission and Vision
The mission of the Saint Louis University Program in Physical Therapy is built on traditions of Jesuit education to develop the whole person - mind, body, and spirit. This community seeks to prepare doctors of physical therapy who strive for excellence in providing person-centered care that is ethical, culturally competent and evidence-based and models interprofessional collaboration. We participate in scholarly and clinical endeavors to advance physical therapy practice and research. We are committed to personal and professional development and strive to make a difference in the lives of individuals, in the profession and in the community at large.
The Saint Louis University Program in Physical Therapy will be recognized nationally as a leading academic physical therapy program that, in the spirit of the Jesuit tradition, prepares doctors of physical therapy who strive for excellence, advances knowledge and practice through research and scholarship, advocates for those in need, and serves the community.
