The Physical Therapy Program at Daemen College, located in Amherst, NY, as well as the entry-level Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Hardin-Simmons University (HSU), located in Abilene, Tex, have each recently earned reaccreditation.

The Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) of the American Physical Therapy Association awarded the 10-year reaccreditation status in both instances, according to separate news releases.

“We are proud to have our program granted this prestigious accreditation, which is the hallmark of academic excellence in physical therapy education,” says Dr Michael Brogan, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the Daemen College.

Established in 1974, Daemen’s Physical Therapy Program is one of three institutions in the Buffalo Niagara region that hold CAPTE accreditation, per the release.

While HSU’s institutional accreditation was recently reaffirmed by the Board of Trustees for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, many individual programs, like DPT, must also be individually accredited, notes the release from HSU.
