School of Physical Therapy


School of Physical Therapy Mission

The UIW School of Physical Therapy educates physical  therapists who, through skilled, reflective, holistic patient-centered  practice, optimize movement and wellness for the common good of society. We are  committed to graduating general practitioners who are self-directed lifelong  learners, and who address patient and societal needs through evidence-based  decision making, and promote the achievement of societal health goals. 

Our faculty are further committed to  contributing to the body of physical therapy knowledge through scholarship, and  serving the traditionally underserved populations in Texas and globally through  education and outreach.

University of the Incarnate Word Mission

The first  Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, three young French women  motivated by the love of God and their recognition of God’s presence in  each person, came to San Antonio in 1869 to minister to the sick and the  poor. Their spirit of Christian service is perpetuated in the  University of the Incarnate Word primarily through teaching and  scholarship, encompassing research and artistic expression. Inspired by  Judeo-Christian values, the University aims to educate men and women who  will become concerned and enlightened citizens. The University  is committed to educational excellence in a context of faith in Jesus  Christ, the Incarnate Word of God. It promotes life-long learning and  fosters the development of the whole person. The faculty and students  support one another in the search for and the communication of truth.  The university is open to thoughtful innovation that serves ever more  effectively the spiritual and material needs of people. The curriculum  offers students an integrated program of liberal arts and professional  studies that includes a global perspective and an emphasis on social  justice and community service. The University of the Incarnate  Word is a Catholic institution that welcomes to its community persons of  diverse backgrounds, in the belief that their respective interaction  advances the discovery of truth, mutual understanding, self-realization, and the common good.
