Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Physical Therapy, School of Health Professions, Hunter College of CUNY.

THE SECRETARY OFFICE NUMBER: 212-396-7103;    Email:

Please be advised that due to the abundance of concern about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in support of the City's efforts to limit crowds during this challenging time, we have decided to cancel the PT Alumni Reunion Evening scheduled for April 26, 2020.
Although we wanted to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Hunter College and the 50th Anniversary of the PT Department and honor Dr. Elaine Rosen for her retirement, we are not able to commit to running this event. While we are cancelling the dinner, we look forward to seeing you at the Hunter College All Class Reunion on October 3rd, where there will be opportunities to gather as a Department together and celebrate! 

If you have already registered and paid, you will be issued a refund to the original form of payment.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this cancellation.

We wish you and your family a safe journey during these next few months.
