The Department of Physical Therapy at UTC is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 1111North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22341; telephone: 703-706-3245; e-mail:; website: We received our initial accreditation by CAPTE in 1992, and have been continuously accredited since that time.  UTC has been awarding the DPT since 2003.  The department also offers the Transition (post-professional) DPT in an online format; CAPTE does not accredit transition DPT programs.


Our DPT graduates have achieved a 100% pass rate on the National Licensure Exam for nine of the last ten years!


Student Outcomes

  • Graduation Rates:  Average graduation rate of 92.0% for the last three graduating classes (2011, 2012, 2013)
  • Licensure examination pass rates:  96.6% ultimate pass rate on the National Physical Therapy Exam for 2013 and 100% for nine of the last ten years
  • Employment rate: 100% of graduates employed within six months of passing the licensure exam



According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of physical therapists is expected to grow 27 percent from 2006 to 2016, much faster than the average for all occupations.
