You are encouraged to meet with a pre-health advisor at least once a semester to discuss options for careers in medicine, opportunities to gain relevant experience, discussing the best time to apply, preparation for the MCAT, the AMCAS application, and much more. For more information, schedule an appointment with your advisor.
PTCAS typically opens in June and will close beginning of June the following year. Be aware that PT programs will have specific deadlines to submit.
|July 5, 2019||PTCAS application opens for submission|
PTCAS recognizes volunteer, shadow, and paid work as PT observation hours. Each DPT Program may have specific requirements such as type of setting, number of hours completed, and type of work. For instance, NAU does not require students to have PT observation hours, but highly recommends them. Midwestern does require 60 hours of PT observation that must be verified by a licensed PT via PTCAS. A.T Still University requires 30 PT observation hours, but does not require that they are verified. It is important to check each program’s requirements.
