Visit our new campus in Austin
We are excited to announce that the University will be expanding once again! In September of 2012, we will be taking our first class on our new Austin, TX campus!
The 74,000 square-foot campus will be built by Hardin Construction Company on 27.7 acres near the Circle C Ranch community. The two building layout will house a number of student centered learning classrooms, laboratories, research facilities, a library, wellness center and student lounge areas, as well as administration and office spaces. Sawtooth Development Group, who also built USA’s San Diego, CA campus, will be leading this new campus expansion.
The Austin campus will be able to accommodate approximately 500 students and will open in September of 2012. USA is now accepting applications for the inaugural class which offers our on-campus full-time degree program for students who are seeking to obtain their Doctor of Physical Therapy degree (DPT).
“This is an exciting time for our University,” states USA President, Dr. Wanda Nitsch. “We have been planning a Texas campus for four years and are thrilled to see our progress. We hope to garner the successes we have experienced at our other campuses and apply this same focus on health professional education to our newest location in Austin.“
We are excited that Patricia M. King, PT, PhD, OCS, MTC will be the Director for the DPT program in Austin. Dr. King has over 30 years of clinical and educational experience and is currently a member of the APTA’s Manipulation Work Group. What an exciting time this is for USA!
