PRE-PHYSICAL THERAPY AND PRE-OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

 
 

SUNY Oneonta has articulated programs in Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy with the Sage Graduate School in Troy, NY and in Physical Therapy with the SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY. There are 4 + 3 programs in Physical Therapy with both schools and a 4 + 2 Program in Occupational Therapy with Sage, four years and a bachelors degree at Oneonta followed by two years of graduate study at Sage. The Upstate and Sage PT programs lead to DPT degrees; the Sage OT program leads to an MOT degree.


In addition, the College has a 3+3 program in Physical Therapy with Upstate that leads to a BS degree with a Biology major from Oneonta and a DPT degree from Upstate in a total of six years. Admission to this program is highly competitive and is separate from admission to SUNY Oneonta; it is administered by Upstate Medical University. Application for admission to this program should be made by high school seniors. For details, please see Dr. Armstrong.


Aside from students in Upstate’s Early Admission Program, admission to Upstate’s DPT and Sage’s DPT and MOT is not guaranteed and is competitive. Please see Dr. Armstrong for details about admission to these programs.

Pre-PT and OT students, other than those in the Upstate 3 + 3 PT program, can complete any major at Oneonta as long as they complete the course work required for the specific program.
