On November 3, 2020, the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) reaffirmed the accreditation status based upon compliance with all of the evaluative criteria. The
accreditation status remains in effect for the full 10 year period until 2031 at which time the accreditation status will undergo a self-study report and on-site review.
The Program received initial accreditation in 1947 from the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals of the American Medical Association. The Program made the transition from offering only a certificate to awarding a baccalaureate degree in 1952,
and continued at that degree level until 1990 when a Master of Science, Physical Therapy degree was initiated. In 2003, the Program was approved to offer a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree by the CAPTE. The program has been continuously
accredited since its inception.
CAPTE has a mechanism to consider formal complaints about physical therapy education programs that allege a program is not in compliance with
one or more of CAPTE's Evaluative Criteria or has violated any of CAPTE's expectations related to academic integrity. To obtain the materials necessary for submitting a complaint, contact APTA Accreditation Department at 703-706-3245 or at
