Brenau DPT program marks milestone

Brenau University’s three-year-old physical therapy (PT) doctoral degree program in May marked important milestones with the matriculation of 40 members of the new physical therapy cohort.

Their presence means the program, based at Brenau Downtown Center in Gainesville, GA, now operates at its full capacity of 120 students and will help move the young program toward full accreditation, according to a university release.

Following the positive review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) in late 2014 granted Brenau candidacy for accreditation, which enabled the university to admit the first cohort in May 2015.

But the program can’t receive full accreditation from CAPTE until May 2018, when those first candidates complete their studies and receive degrees.
