More About the Program

Physical Therapy in Glendale

Previously only available on our Downers Grove campus, you can now enroll in the MWU physical therapy program in Glendale.

When you study physical therapy at Midwestern University, you're part of a learning team engaged in rigorous didactic instruction. And you'll get solid hands-on experience in four clinical rotations under the supervision of licensed practitioners. Preparing for the 21st century health care team means working together as you practice independent judgment and leadership — exactly the opportunity you'll find at Midwestern University.
