Failed to make the cut for Physiotherapy in a local institution? Looking for a fulfilling overseas study experience? Fret not, because here in Global Study Abroad, we guide you in making your choice in this crucial phase of your life.



This article reveals some pathways that will eventually land you a Doctorate in Physiotherapy from a recognised American University.


But before that, we present to you the list of recognised qualifications in Physiotherapy from the United States:


  1. Boston University
  2. MGH Institute of Health Professions
  3. Northwestern University
  4. University of Pittsburgh
  5. University of Southern California
  6. Washington University in St. Louis


A standard route to mainstream American Universities makes up the first of the pathways. Students can pursue their Bachelor’s Degree from accredited American institutions such as those stated above, earning a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and above at the end of the course. Students are also required to complete prerequisite electives such as Chemistry and Physics.


Foundation pathway is another option that can be considered. Kings Education, in particular, guarantees graduation from a Top 100 US University. There are various transfer options such as the 2+2 transfer pathway in which students spend the first 2 years in Kings and the remaining 2 at the transfer university.


Community College is a cheaper option that is unique to the US. Green River College, in this case, provides student a 2+2 transfer pathway in which students will take a two-year program in USA through Green River College and transfer into the final two-year of a top US university. On top of that, students will be able to gain access to top universities without needing to take test preparations such as Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT).
