Final Graduate Year Info
On June 19, Ithaca College president Tom Rochon announced the physical therapy program will be united on the Ithaca College campus effective Fall 2014. For more information on the announcement, please read the full press release.
Ithaca College has seven full-time faculty who teach and/or coordinate the required courses in the final graduate year of the DPT curriculum at Ithaca College's Rochester Center.

Some student projects culminate in publication or presentation at state, regional, and national conferences. More info ...
