Phoenix Program

Accreditation Status

Effective November 2, 2021, Creighton University – Phoenix Health Sciences Campus has been granted Candidate for Accreditation status by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 3030 Potomac Ave., Suite 100, Alexandria, Virginia 22305-3085; phone: 703-706-3245; email: accreditation@apta.org.  If needing to contact the program/institution directly, please call 602.812.3131 or email jameslynskey@creighton.edu.

Candidate for Accreditation is an accreditation status of affiliation with the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education that indicates the program may matriculate students in technical/professional courses. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status does not assure that the program will be granted Initial Accreditation.

Candidacy is considered to be an accredited status, as such the credits and degree earned from a program with Candidacy status are considered, by CAPTE, to be from an accredited program.  Therefore, students in the charter (first) class should be eligible to take the licensure exam even if CAPTE withholds accreditation at the end of the candidacy period. That said, it is up to each state licensing agency, not CAPTE, to determine who is eligible for licensure.  Information on licensing requirements should be directed to the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT;www.fsbpt.org) or specific state boards (a list of state boards and contact information is available on FSBPT's website).

Complaints that fall outside of due process should be directed to Dr. James Lynskey, Physical Therapy Department Chair - Phoenix, School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, at jameslynskey@creighton.edu or Dr. Paul Price, Senior Associate Dean, School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, at paulprice@creighton.edu. Retaliation following complaint submission is prohibited.
