The Gannon University-Erie, Pa Doctor of Physical Therapy Program has been granted re-accreditation status by the Commission on Accreditation of Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) on May 31, 2019 for the period of 10 years.
The CAPTE accreditation process provides assurance to the public that the program meets specific quality standards, including expected licensure exam pass rate, graduation rate and employment rate. The process helps to maintain program quality and stimulates improvement through ongoing program assessment.
“The commission commends the program for the quality of the educational program. The program’s quality was depicted through its well-written, thorough, concise and comprehensive self-study reports as well as the evidence provided during the accreditation reaffirmation process,” reads a statement from CAPTE.
Continuing accreditation ensures that graduates of the DPT Program are eligible to sit for the national licensing exam before applying for state licensure.
“We are thrilled with the affirmation received from CAPTE through this re-accreditation. Their commendation of the DPT program affirms our mission to deliver exceptional academic programs and our goal to serve as a leader in healthcare education,” said Sarah Ewing, dean of the Morosky College of Health Professions and Sciences.
