UNT Health Science Center's Physical Therapy Program Achieves Accreditation

FORT WORTH, Texas, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The UNT Health Science Center's Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, which began accepting students in 2010, has achieved initial accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Physical Therapy Education. The program's first class, which graduates this month, will be eligible to sit for the Texas state board licensing exam. Initial accreditation is valid for five years; subsequent cycles will be for 10 years.

Accreditation:

  • Protects students by assuring that programs meet minimal standards
  • Protects the public by graduating students who are competent to practice
  • Assists with student mobility
  • Provides access to federal financial aid for students
  • Aids with entrance to a profession

"Our curriculum is rigorous because it is delivered by faculty with 129 years of experience in PT education, collectively," said Clayton Holmes, PT, EdD, and Chairman of the Physical Therapy Department. "Most of the inaugural class of 29 students have decided to practice in the Tarrant County area. Two of the graduates will practice in rural Texas, where health services are especially needed.

"With an increased emphasis on prevention and wellness, in addition to aging Baby Boomers, society is trending toward physical therapy," Holmes said. "Our graduates are well prepared to meet the physical therapy needs of this area."

UNT Health Science Center

The UNT Health Science Center comprises the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine , Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences , School of Public Health , School of Health Professions and the UNT System College of Pharmacy (opening in fall 2013). Key areas of inter-professional strength include aging and Alzheimer's disease, applied genetics, primary care and prevention.
