For: PT

The EIM Post-Professional DPT program is a transitional DPT program committed to developing evidence-informed physical therapists who are prepared to function as autonomous practitioners for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. This 18-month program of clinically oriented education is designed to bridge one’s foundational education to the DPT level. Each student is challenged to improve their clinical knowledge and enhance their personal practice with coursework grounded in evidenced-informed and patient-centered clinical decision-making and reasoning. Students develop a skill set that will foster lifelong learning, professional growth, and clinical development. They will be exposed to passionate faculty that embody clinical relevance, evidence-informed practice, and patient-centered decision-making.


  • Grow as practitioners grounded in the principles of evidence-based medicine and become experts at integrating that knowledge into clinical practice.
  • Develop evidence-based practice principles and behave accordingly in daily practice.
  • Flourish in a cutting-edge educational environment that integrates state-of-the-art learning tools with advanced professional clinical practice.
  • Gain skills to confidently and professionally interact with other members of the healthcare team and provide leadership in the care of musculoskeletal conditions.
  • Promote lifelong learning for physical therapists.


EIM’s tDPT, like all tDPTs, is unaccredited, because CAPTE only accredits entry-level DPT programs. EIM is a teaching institute that is licensed to issue certificates; however, it is not a regionally accredited institution. If your goals are clinical in nature, this program will meet your needs; if your goals are academic, we recommend researching requirements for your tDPT.
