Physical Therapy Curriculum: First Year - Class of 2020

The physical therapy curriculum at Stony Brook undergoes a formal review process annually based on input from students, faculty and our clinical instructors. Modifications in course sequencing, content and descriptions often result from this ongoing assessment process and are reflected in the incoming class curriculum once approved by the Curriculum Committee within School of Health Technology & Management.
