    The PhD in Health Sciences (Movement Sciences) is interesting, but when you click on the link, it takes you to the Physical Therapy website. I see no mention of distance learning.

    From the site:

    "In addition to managing patient care, a PT is:
    • A Researcher
    • An Educator
    • A Consultant
    • An Administrator

    There are two Entry-Level Doctor of Physical Therapy programs offered through Rutgers School of Health Related Professions. The PT Newark program is located on the main campus in Newark and the PT Stratford program is located on the Stratford Campus."

    Rutgers SHRP - Physical Therapy: Department of Rehabilitation & Movement Sciences

    Upon completion of this program, are you considered a PT?

    Also, from the site:

    "Welcome to Rutgers SHRP Doctor of Physical Therapy Programs"

    It looks like the Movement Sciences specialization is probably intended for PTs who wish to move into research or administration. From the catalog, updated June 2013:

    Program Overview
    The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Health Sciences Program prepares practicing health care professionals to assume leadership roles in health-related research, academic and/or clinical settings. To that end, the Program emphasizes the rigorous application of research and scholarship as the basis for identifying and addressing the many issues and questions arising in our complex health care delivery and education systems. The Program is an interdisciplinary and interprofessional program with students from many health-related disciplines. The Program requires a minimum of sixty (60) credits beyond the master’s degree.
