Mission, Vision & Goals


Our Mission


The mission of the Department of Physical Therapy at Florida International University is to contribute to the health of the global community. Our student-centered program will prepare an ethnically, racially and culturally diverse group of students to be caring and competent Doctors of Physical Therapy. The department will foster critical thinking, scholarship and leadership through the conduct of an evidenced-based curriculum and dissemination of basic and clinical interdisciplinary research related to populations who have, or are at risk for developing movement problems. Faculty and students will be engaged in community activity that is aligned with our research and teaching.
