It is 3 years of graduate school after you have achieved an undergrad degree and been accepted into a PT program. Many people spend a year in between undergrad and grad school to work as a PT Tech

Hi Brikiya,


I have friends and family that are physical therapists. From their experience, most DPT programs are an additional 3 years after completing an undergraduate degree of 4 years, for a total of 7 years of college education. It is a lot of years of schooling but both my sister in law and friend who are physical therapists love it and love helping others.
