From the Department Head

Nancy Fell


Physical Therapy is a dynamic profession that is highly rewarding to the practitioner and the client. Our graduates are well prepared to be competent physical therapists in a variety of practice settings. The physical therapy program at UTC is very fortunate to have an extremely well prepared faculty and staff who are committed to facilitating the success of our students. In addition, the physical therapy community is strongly supportive of our students as they complete the clinical education components of the curriculum. When these two strengths are grouped with the support of a great university and city, it becomes clear that The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is an exciting place to study physical therapy. 

As you consider your educational direction, I hope that you will actively consider our program and university. This web site has been designed to inform you about our physical therapy program at UTC. You will find helpful information about the DPT program prerequisites and the admission process. We have also included suggestions for how to schedule and prepare for an advisement session with one of the faculty members of the Physical Therapy Department. We trust the information on this web page will help answer many of your questions about our program. If you would like additional information, please feel free to directly contact the faculty and staff of the Physical Therapy Department. We welcome the opportunity to directly respond to your questions. Please call us at 423-425-4747.
