CAPTE Information

 

The PTA program completed an onsite assessment of the program by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) in June of 2009.  This concluded a year long self-study with documentation of all policies and procedures, teaching syllabi and textbooks and assessments used.

Standards assessed by CAPTE are the basis for the design of the curriculum, maintenance of all needed resources to support the program, policies and procedures that apply to all students and faculty members associated with the program and program outcomes leading to completion of the AAS degree.

During the site visit students, alumni, faculty and administrators were interviewed and all resources used by student were reviewed. Reaccreditation was granted to continue until 2019. This is the designated timeframe before another self-study and site visit will occur. Two compliance reports were submitted following the onsite visit to complete the reaccreditation.

The Courseview expansion program in Mason, Ohio received final approval without additional request for information on May 23, 2012. The expansion program will be reviewed in 2019 along with the main campus program.

Questions regarding the significance of the standards required for accreditation should be addressed to the PTA program director.

Update:  CAPTE has requested additional reporting for change in program leadership due March 1, 2013.
