Hampton, Va. –The Hampton University Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) program has been re-accredited for 10 years by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).
“Students, future employers, and the general public can be assured that Hampton’s DPT Program has a solid, comprehensive curriculum delivered by a highly qualified faculty that prepares graduates to be competent physical therapists,” said Dr. Bernadette Williams, Chairperson of the HU Department of Physical Therapy.
The process for re-accreditation took two years, Williams said, adding that the DPT faculty underwent a thorough review of the entire curriculum, making revisions where necessary in course content, course objectives, learning experiences and/or student evaluation.
The program now has six full-time and one part-time faculty members, 42 students and 26 new students will begin matriculation in Fall 2011, Williams said.
HU was the first university to have a DPT program in Virginia, and is one of only eight Historically Black Colleges and University (HBCUs) with a physical therapy program.
