The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor on Friday announced plans to develop a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree program, proposed to begin in the fall of 2014. The university will seek to develop a program that complies with the requirements of the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education; currently, there are only 11 CAPTE-accredited programs in the state.

“We believe that the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree will be a great addition to the degree programs at UMHB,” said Randy O’Rear, the university president. “The Doctor of Physical Therapy degree will serve as a strong corollary to the current Pre-Physical Therapy major in our undergraduate program. It will strengthen our commitment to health-related education in the region, and it will allow us to extend our mission of Christian higher education to a new population of students.”
