The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the University of Delaware is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314; telephone: 703-706-3245; email; website. Please visit our Student Outcomes page for information on graduation rate, ultimate licensure exam pass rate, and employment rate over the most recent three years. The Department of Physical Therapy also offers qualifying DPT students the option to earn a Master of Science (MS) in Anatomy and Clinical Health Science. Unlike the DPT program, the MS Degree program falls outside the auspice of CAPTE accreditation but is accredited by Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Further, the University of Delaware offers credentialed residencies in sports, orthopedics, geriatrics, neurology, and acute care. Similarly, CAPTE does not provide oversight or accreditation of residency programs. Our residency programs are accredited by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE).
