Candidate for Accreditation

Candidate for Accreditation is a status that indicates that the orthotic and prosthetic education program is progressing toward formal accreditation. Attainment of Candidate for Accreditation status does not assure accreditation by CAAHEP. The purpose is to help assure that the institution develops an O&P program with adequate planning and with the necessary resources (e.g., leadership, faculty, physical plant, budget, clinical education sites.). Students graduating under a "candidate for accreditation" status would not be considered graduates of an accredited program, since this is not an accreditation status.
