Hanover College DPT Program Overview
Students can expect to dedicate 42-54 hours per week to coursework. Coursework includes face-to-face live class sessions (synchronous) and independent learning activities students complete on their own time (asynchronous). This unique evidence-based curriculum is based on high-quality, engaging coursework developed by Hanover College DPT faculty, with threads of service, innovation, interprofessional education, and telehealth, woven throughout to prepare students for the future of physical therapy practice.
In Person: 20%
During year one, students will attend eight (8) in-person lab immersions at Hanover College and/or Hanover College - South Campus located in Jeffersonville, Indiana. A unique feature available to students on Hanover's campus is our state-of-the-art anatomy laboratory in the Hanover College Science Center. Through a multi-modal approach for hands-on, active learning, students will experience full body dissection, spaces for review of prosected body parts, and other areas for student engagement via human cadavers, technology via 3D printed models, clay models, and media enhanced virtual anatomy.
Clinical Education: 30%
During year two, students will participate in three Clinical Education rotations (31 total weeks). Our academic faculty values the essential partnerships with clinical educational faculty in creating quality clinical education experiences. Integrated clinical education experiences during our lab immersions are concurrent with didactic course work. Clinical internships, in a variety of practice settings with exposure to patients across the lifespan, follow the completion of the didactic coursework and occur during the fourth through the sixth semesters of the program.
