UD Physical Therapy students win recognition for fundraising efforts

CONGRATULATIONS to our students for becoming one of the top three fundraising schools in the nation for the 2014-2015 Miami-Marquette Challenge. UDPT students raised a total of $15,072.52 this year! These efforts earned them the Award of Excellence (for fundraising totals exceeding $10,000), membership in the Philanthropy Circle - Cornerstone Society (for cumulative giving greater than $50,000), and the Biggest Stretch Award (for greatest expansion of its fundraising base). We are exceedingly proud of the tremendous effort and dedication of our students to advance the quality and practice of physical therapy! Congratulations again!


The mission of our Department is to advance physical therapy practice through the integration of education, clinical practice and research.

The Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the University of Delaware is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314; telephone: 703-706-3245; email:; website: Please visit our "Student Outcomes" page for information on graduation rate, ultimate licensure exam pass rate, and employment rate over the most recent three years.
The Department of Physical Therapy also offers qualifying DPT students the option to earn a Master of Science (MS) in Anatomy and Clinical Health Science. Unlike the DPT program, the MS Degree program falls outside the auspice of CAPTE accreditation. Further, the University of Delaware offers credentialed residencies in sports, orthopedics, geriatrics and neurology. Similarly, CAPTE does not provide oversight or accreditation of residency programs.
