About Our Program
Physical therapists in high-demand.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of physical therapists is projected to grow 34% from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for physical therapy services will come from the aging baby boomers, who are staying active later in life. In addition, physical therapists will be needed to treat people with mobility issues stemming from chronic conditions, such as diabetes or obesity.
Congratulations to our 2019 graduates!
The Physical Therapy Program at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).
