WVU Physical Therapy Class of 2016, Faculty, and Staff

Welcome to the Division of Physical Therapy


The Department of Human Performance and Applied Exercise Science consists not only of the Division of Physical Therapy, but also includes the Divisions of Exercise Physiology and Occupational Therapy. This administrative arrangement expands the Division’s resources and opportunities for students.

We have 45 years of experience in professional physical therapy education and have been recognized both within and outside the University for our high-quality DPT program. Our graduates, students, faculty, and staff belong to something bigger than just themselves... and we are excited to share this tradition of excellence by serving the public, the profession, and you. We encourage you to explore the Division of Physical Therapy website to see details related to our mission, curriculum, outcomes, faculty, featured students, scholarship, awards, and the DPT admissions process.
