    New Podcast: Student Loan Repayment

    Student loan repayment for physical therapists is 1 of APTA's legislative priorities to pursue policies to enhance the physical therapy workforce. One of the most prominent programs is through the National Health Service Corps, which is described in a new APTA podcast that outlines several loan repayment options that exist for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. 

    A transcript of the prerecorded podcast is available on the podcast Web page.

    Why is the APTA not pushing for PTA's to be included with PT's in the rural initiative? In my rural area PTA's are used extensively in the SNF settings. With the oncoming increase in aged population growth (baby boomers)this demand is only increasing. Where is the APTA in advocacy for PTA's in this situation?

    If you go to the podcast or transcript, you will see that PTAs are also included in this.
