Physical therapists focus primarily on the treatment of individuals who have an  impairment that affects the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiopulmonary, and integumentary (skin) systems. The Physical Therapy program at MUSC has been a leader in utilizing effective and efficient instructional methods and materials that capitalize on the advantages of instructional technology. We have established diverse clinical education sites that provide students with a broad-spectrum of clinical experiences. Physical Therapists are in high demand for their skill and experience. This is a profession filled with opportunities for growth and diversification.
