General Requirements

A Certificate from TWU School of Physical Therapy implies mastery of the knowledge and skills in the certificate area. Therefore, in addition to the Graduate School requirement that students who enroll in graduate courses must maintain a 3.0 GPA on all graduate-level courses taken at TWU, only one course where a C was earned will be applied toward the Certificate in Advanced Geriatric Physical Therapy. All of the courses are non-sequential with no required courses. Course selection is based on self-assessment of advanced clinical competencies in consultation with the Coordinator of Post Professional Studies, Dallas, who is Board Certified in Geriatric Physical Therapy.
