“I was just amazed when I walked inside [the STAR Health Sciences Complex]. I had never seen anything like it. I have been to a lot of physical therapies but I feel like your building is what the public really needs. The physical therapists are interested in every case that comes in – you can tell because of the way they talk to you and the way they treat you. You all have helped me a whole lot and I think the treatment is very good. I had had a pain in my shoulder for a long time and I had been getting shots in my shoulder, but your therapist put his hand on my back and showed me the exercises to do with my arms. Now, I don’t have pain in my shoulder anymore. I just feel great that I went there, and overjoyed that I feel back to myself again.” – Ida Barkley

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).
