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).
