Arcadia University's College of Health Sciences is developing a hybrid Doctor of Physical Therapy program and seeking approval from CAPTE. The program, an addition to the existing accredited physical therapy education program at Arcadia, is in planning for a cohort beginning in Fall 2020 and has submitted an Application for Approval of Substantive Change, which is the formal application required in the pre-approval stage. The application is under consideration for review during the Spring meeting, April 24-28, 2020. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be approved. The program should receive notification of the status of its application by May 2020.
Approval of the Substantive Change is required prior to implementation of the hybrid program.
