Program Mission & Outcomes
The Doctor of Physical Therapy degree program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE). Mount Saint Mary’s DPT graduates are eligible to sit for the National Physical Therapy Exam in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Licenses are granted by the licensing authority in individual states and those licensing boards might require an additional exam on laws and regulations specific to that state. The Physical Therapy Board of California is the licensing authority for California and requires an exam on the laws and regulations for practice of physical therapy in California. Contact information for the licensing authorities in other jurisdictions can be found on the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy website here. Mount Saint Mary’s University is also in the process of researching professional licensure requirements in others states.
