The primary purpose of the Physical Therapy (PT) Program at the UK College of Health Sciences is to meet the physical therapy needs of Kentuckians and contribute to global needs by developing competent physical therapy practitioners who are critical thinkers, educators, and professionals. The PT Program strives to develop practitioners who are knowledgeable, ethical, independent, adaptable, reflective, and service-oriented. This practitioner development is accomplished through a variety of mechanisms:
  • Educational programs offered at campuses in Lexington and at the Center of Excellence in Rural Health in Hazard, KY
  • Scholarship, research and creative activities
  • Public service
  • Professional socialization
