History of the first and oldest physical therapist education program in the nation
The Physical Therapists education program at Chapman University, is the first and oldest in the United States. The Physical Therapy program at Chapman University started in 1910 at the Children hospital in Los Angeles, and was one of the first few programs to receive accreditation by the APTA in 1928. After many decades at the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, the Physical Therapy program was affiliated with Chapman University in 1985, when regional accreditation of institutions were required. The Physical Therapy program fully became part of Chapman University, and was moved to the Orange, CA campus in 1993. At the time, the program was an entry-level master’s degree program, and became accredited as a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program in 2001, graduating its first DPT students in 2004. In 2014, as part of a 5-year Strategic Plan of Chapman University to grow the Health Sciences, the Physical Therapy program moved to new facilities in Irvine, CA as part of the newly formed Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences at the Rinker Health Science Campus.
