Physical Therapist Assistant Program

Effective May 15, 2014 the Physical Therapist Assistant program at Hawkeye Community College has been placed on probation by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314; telephone: 703-706-3245; email: accreditation@apta.org; website: www.capteonline.org.

Probation is an accredited status; however, probation signals that the program’s accreditation is in jeopardy if the issues identified by CAPTE are not resolved in a timely manner.

Hawkeye Community College is committed to academic excellence and currently is actively working to resolve outstanding issues. As a demonstration of that commitment, Hawkeye Community College has retained the assistance of a consultant with expertise in PTA programs and accreditation processes.

Hawkeye Community College remains confident that its PTA program will be reinstated to full accreditation status as awarded by CAPTE after its next program review in the fall of 2014.
