March 3, 2008Doctor of Physical Therapy Program in Arizona

The Franklin Pierce University, College of Graduate and Professional Studies, Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program is seeking accreditation for an expansion program at Goodyear, Arizona by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education of the American Physical Therapy Association.

The program will submit an Application for Approval of Substantive Change, which is the formal application required to expand the program to an additional site. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Accreditation status to the expansion site.

The DPT expansion program is part of the University's strategy to extend educational opportunities to more students in other parts of the country. In 2006, the mayor of Goodyear, Arizona invited higher education institutions around the country to consider establishing a campus in one of the nation's fastest growing regions. Franklin Pierce was selected as a finalist and the University is one of two schools that will be offering classes in Goodyear. Franklin Pierce's initial focus in Arizona will be on degree programs in health care and business.
