Nov 28, 2022

First Student Cohort Expected to Start in January 2023

North Central College’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program received its Candidate for Accreditation from the Commission of Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), the accrediting body for entry-level physical therapists and physical therapist assistant education programs. This important distinction means that the College can welcome its first cohort of DPT students this January in compliance with the high standards of excellences and innovation established by CAPTE.

North Central’s DPT program will span 28-months and will be competency focused, being the only pass/no pass program of its kind offered in Illinois. The focus will be on mastery of knowledge, critical thinking, and skill acquisition. The program is committed to educating a diverse workforce, embracing current technology, and offering a flexible, semi-self-paced and personalized approach to learning that meets students where they are.

The College’s exciting news was shared in WBBM-AM Radio and in the Naperville Patch.
