Residential PathwayThe University of Colorado Physical Therapy Residential Program is a component of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department within the CU School of Medicine on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. It is the only academic medical center within 500 miles of Denver. This collaborative and interprofessional campus is home to six professional schools offering over 40 degree programs including the School of Medicine, College of Nursing, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, School of Dental Medicine, Colorado School of Public Health, and the Graduate School.
Students in the residential pathway generally live near campus or in the Denver-metro area. Residential does NOT infer that student live on campus. These students attend classes on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO. Some class sessions may occur online (blended learning) when that meets the course objectives, but there will be time on the Anschutz Medical Campus throughout each week. Students complete clinical experiences in the greater Denver/Front Range area, throughout Colorado, or across the nation. This pathway follows the more “traditional” model of physical therapy education that has been successfully producing CU graduates for the past 75 years.
