The Gannon University-Ruskin Doctor of Physical Therapy program has received accreditation status by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education. The program has received the maximum initial accreditation for the period of five years, effective April 28, 2020. 

The CAPTE accreditation process provides assurance to the public that a 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. 

Continuing accreditation ensures that graduates of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program are eligible to sit for the national licensing exam before applying for state licensure.

“Accomplishing initial accreditation status for a professional program is the ultimate in team process. I am very proud and grateful of the efforts made by students, faculty, staff and administration throughout this process,” said Rick Johnson, Ed.D., associate dean of Gannon’s Ruskin campus.
