Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT)

Qualified candidates are invited to an on-campus interview with faculty at MCPHS-Worcester. Faculty interviews are open application which means your interviewer will have your complete application available to them during the interview and may ask questions about your academic history, work experience (if any), and extracurricular activities. You should be prepared to talk about all aspects of your application.

Prepping for your interview: Prior to coming to campus, be sure to research the University and read the information that has been sent to you. Showing you have a good understanding of our program and university will help you in the interview process.

Practice makes perfect: Consider having a friend or family member perform a mock interview with you. Consider questions like:

  • What are your strengths?
  • Why do you want to attend MCPHS?
  • What courses did you enjoy most in your undergraduate experience?
  • What, or who, has most influenced your decision to apply to this program?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions: Come prepared with a list of your own questions. The interview is an opportunity for you to get to know us as much as it is for us to get to know you.

Dress the part: Wear professional attire as if you would for a job interview (but wear comfortable shoes as you will be touring the campus!).

Most importantly: be on time, be yourself, and have fun!
