The following resources are for educators looking to develop residency and fellowship programs.
Please note: Programs will comply with APTA’s policies and positions. Programs will not place any resident/fellow in a clinical education experience where the clinic is in a referral for profit situation, that is, one in which a referring physician (medical doctor, doctor of osteopathy, podiatrist, dentist, or chiropractor) derives a financial benefit from the physical therapy services provided to the person who is referred. The situations to which this restriction applies include those in which: (a) the physician has an ownership interest in a physical therapy practice to which he or she refers, (b) the physician or the physician’s practice employs or contracts with physical therapists to provide physical therapy services within the physician practice, or (c) the physician’s income or bonus is directly or indirectly tied to the revenues of the physical therapy service to which he or she refers patients
A program may appeal the actions of ABPTRFE when a program's application is denied accreditation or when an accredited program has its accreditation withdrawn.
