The mission of the University of South Florida School of Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Sciences is to demonstrate excellence in movement sciences through interprofessional education, evidence based clinical practice, research and service.

This mission will be accomplished by preparing doctors of physical therapy, researchers, and clinical residents who have a strong foundation in basic and clinical sciences, and who demonstrate excellence in contemporary, evidence-based patient client management, critical thinking and professionalism.

The mission will be further supported through faculty scholarship and research, and through a clinical practice which enriches the program and serves the community.
