Doctor of Physical Therapy

In January 2021, the Department of Physical Therapy at Tennessee State University moved into the new Health Sciences Building.  The state-of-the-art building has expanded classrooms and labs with smart technology in all of the classrooms.  The move also afforded the program new equipment for simulated labs and a new space for the student-led Tiger Clinic.  Beginning in the fall of 2021, the program will resume all in-person classes and labs.  Classes this summer will continue with a hybrid format.  Please feel free to communicate with our program by accessing our Contact Us page or calling the number listed below. 

Welcome to the Department of Physical Therapy at Tennessee State University!
