Take your physical therapy career to the next level

In a profession where the rate of burnout is high in part due to high volumes of patient care and less than optimal patient outcomes, the Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center will not only enable you to successfully treat the complex patients by becoming a master clinician through development of advanced clinical reasoning and building a comprehensive skillset including manual therapy, pain science and therapeutic interventions. The OMPT program at Ohio State also will give you the opportunity to determine where your passions are, whether that be in patient care, research, education or a leadership role in the profession.
