Kalpit, eligibility for NPTE varies from state to state. While most of the states regulates that one to sit for NPTE, he must have a minimum entry level education in PT equivalent to a Masters in PT. Some states still accepts a Bachelors in PT for one to sit for NPTE.
There are quite few Master degree courses which might interest PTs in the US like Masters in exercise science, Masters in Kinesiology, Masters in exercise physiology, Masters in sports medicine etc., other than Masters in PT. The problem though will be, whether these courses be considered eligible or equivalent to Masters in PT in those particular states where MPT is the minimum level education needed to sit for NPTE. Most of the time they are not considered to be equivalent. But the best possible thing to do when one have to choose such courses, will be to inquire with the particular state PT board where one intends to sit for NPTE , whether they would approve this to be equivalent and eligible for one to sit for the exam.
