Recognition for Innovation and Excellence

In 2012, the Institute was chosen to be one of two academic institutions, along with two clinical sites, to participate in the pilot phase of the Physical Therapist Education for the Twenty-First Century (PTE-21): Innovation and Excellence in Physical Therapist Academic and Clinical Education funded by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

According to APTA researcher Gail Jensen, PT, PhD, FAPTA, Dean of Creighton University Graduate School and the project's lead investigator, the Institute’s DPT program was chosen as the result of a national nomination process that identified four clinical and academic sites based on their innovation and excellence in physical therapist education.
