Doctor of Physical Therapy
The Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program prepares graduates to become licensed physical therapists. The curriculum is grounded in Christian principles and includes 124 graduate-level credits during which students progress through and integrate foundational and clinical sciences, patient/client management skills, and ultimately, the provision of person-centered care. Graduation from a physical therapist education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314; phone; 703-706-3245; email@example.com is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states. Adventist University of Health Sciences is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist education program from CAPTE. Effective November 11, 2015, Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU) has been granted Candidate for Accreditation status by the CAPTE. Candidate for Accreditation is a pre-accreditation status of affiliation with the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education that indicates that the program is progressing toward accreditation and may matriculate students in professional courses. Candidate for Accreditation is not an accreditation status nor does it assure eventual accreditation.
