The U.S. News & World Report released its annual graduate school rankings this month and, once again, the University of Indianapolis’s occupational therapy and physical therapy programs were ranked as being among the top 50 programs in the country. 

The UIndy Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program ranked 33 out of 245 physical therapy programs in the United States. The program also was recognized by the publication for having the top-ranking program in Indiana.

The UIndy Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) program ranked 37 out of 263 occupational therapy programs in the nation.

“I am proud to be associated with UIndy School of Occupational Therapy, its stellar faculty, our innovative curriculum, and our exceptional students and graduates who go out and make a difference in the world every day,” said Brenda S. Howard, the director of the Master of Occupational Therapy Program.

One of the hallmarks of both programs is the Community Patient Resource Group or CPRG which connects University of Indianapolis students to volunteer community members living with a range of disabilities into the classroom. By working with the volunteers, students in the occupational therapy, physical therapy and physical therapist assistant programs are able to get real-world experience working with patients with various diagnoses as early as their first month of their program.
