Hawai’i Pacific University (HPU) plans to launch the first DPT program in Hawaii. The university has hired Tricia Catalino, PT, DSc, Board Certified Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy, as its program director and will begin accepting applications in 2022 for enrollment of its first cohort in January 2023.

Students in the program will complete coursework in two years and work in paid clinical residency positions in year three. The program will feature a hybrid, low-residency model of learning with students completing the majority of coursework online and traveling to HPU’s Honolulu campus annually for 10 to 17 days to participate in an immersive lab experience.
