New DPT program at PNWU

PNWU School of Physical Therapy

Posted by:
March 7, 2023

There are some great benefits to joining a new program at PNWU School of Physical Therapy. Some highlights: small faculty to student ratios, state-of-the-art cadaver dissection laboratory, simulation center, and the Center for Applied Movement Sciences lab. The Center for Applied Movement Sciences lab is part of PNWUs pro bono clinic campus where students have an opportunity to work with patients with various neurological conditions using leading-edge technology. In addition, students work at the Yakima Union Gospel Mission PT pro bono clinic, where you will serve some of our communities most vulnerable populations. PNWUs Doctor of Physical Therapy students focus on improving movement-based impairments but also learn to advocate for better care for uninsured and underinsured populations.

The tuition at PNWU is inclusive of other fees such as textbooks, iPad and anatomy apps, scrubs for the anatomy lab, polo shirts for clinic, and a PT kit for your clinical courses. PNWUs priority is to accept students from the Northwest, rural or medically underserved communities.  With that in mind, they want to remove any potential barriers for our applicants to consider the field of physical therapy. Therefore, they have waived both the application and acceptance fees for this cycle.

Steps: 1. Complete your application. 2. Once they receive your application, they can determine if you have an interview (next interview days are March 24th and April 29th).

If accepted, you would be in the second cohort.

If you have any questions or would like to talk to any of our students in the inaugural class, please contact PNWU School of Physical Therapy admission at 509-249-7888 or
