Historically Black University to Offer Doctoral Program in Physical Therapy

Winston-Salem State University, the historically black educational institution in North Carolina, has received approval from the University of North Carolina board of governors to establish a doctoral program in physical therapy. The three-year program hopes to enroll its first students in January 2011. Included will be a 36-week program in clinical education.

The university’s master’s degree program in physical therapy was established in 2000. Currently there are eight full-time faculty members.
