Get Credit for Your Professional Experience. Move Your Career Forward with the DPT!

Ever wondered about earning the DPT, but gotten bogged down in

  • Concerns about whether your experience "counts" or 
  • The hassles of the application process?

Put your worries aside! Now the process is simpler than ever — using APTA's Physical Therapist Evaluation Tool (PTET). 

PTET can save you time and money (and anxiety!) by providing a set of easy-to-complete, standardized forms for documentation of your past and current education, practice, administrative/management, and scholarly experiences.

How Can PTET Benefit You? It's Simple:

  • Using its customized scored report, you can negotiate a curriculum based on what you already know and what you need to know [learn?].
  • You can be sure that your knowledge and experience will be evaluated consistently as you apply for one or more programs.
  • You'll have one comprehensive document for the admissions process.
  • And you'll be able to use the scored self-assessment report to compare your knowledge and experience with that of a norm-referenced group of DPT graduates.

Make a renewed commitment to your career—and get credit for what you've already accomplished! PTET will help you move forward to the DPT.
