Physical Therapy (DPT)

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; accreditation@apta.org is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states.

Indiana State University is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist education program from CAPTE. The program will submit an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the [professional/technical] phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in [professional/technical] courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Further, though achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be granted accreditation.

PROGRAM MISSION

The mission of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program is to provide a supportive, student-focused learning environment that encourages and educates individuals to develop into compassionate, clinically and culturally competent licensed physical therapists. The physical therapy curriculum will allow opportunities for scholarship, community engagement, and professional service, in addition to in-depth learning in human movement. The program will emphasize ways in which future physical therapists can contribute to the health equity of all.
