Fellowship Programs: Application Process

  • An individual may contact and apply to a program at any time. Programs vary significantly in time requirements, clinical responsibilities, didactic education, and research involvement. The selection of a fellowship program should be based on the applicant's goals, learning style, and areas of interest. In addition to clinical hours and didactic coursework, some programs may offer the opportunity to participate in research, classroom teaching, observation with physicians, or in hands-on work with athletic teams.

    Application deadline dates and interview schedules are dictated by each fellowship program individually. The time frame to begin and the length of the program may vary from program to program. APTA has launched a centralized application service to facilitate the application process for residency and fellowship applicants.  Please visit the RF-PTCAS program directory for the detailed application and program information for those program participating in the service. For all further inquires, please contact the programs directly.
