A Doctor of Physical Therapy DPT or Doctor of Physiotherapy D-Physio degree is a post-baccalaureate 5 year degree that may be conferred upon successful completion of a professional doctoral program. A Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree is also offered for those who already hold a professional Master of Physical Therapy MPT degree.

Both degrees currently prepare students to be eligible for the PT license examination in all 50 states. The Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education CAPTE will require all programs to offer the DPT degree effective about 5 years before. After completing a DPT program the doctor of physical therapy may continue training in a Residency (medicine) and then fellowship. Credentialed residencies are between 9 and 36 months while credentialed fellowships are between 6 and 36 months.
