  • On-site Reviewers for PTA Programs Needed

    The Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) is seeking nominations for physical therapist assistant (PTA) on-site reviewers to evaluate accredited programs. While CAPTE always seeks individuals committed to the accreditation and peer review process it embodies, it now is looking specifically for PTA on-site review team members who are APTA members and currently work as PTA clinicians and for higher education administrators (eg, president, provost, vice president of academics or instruction, department or division chair) who are involved with an accredited PTA program at their institution. Interested PTAs can find additional information and requirements in this Call for On-site CAPTE Reviewers.

    • CAPTE reviewers are volunteers but receive an honorarium for each team assignment and reimbursement for any visit-related expenses. The current honorarium for team members is $125 per day (visits are typically 4 days). Interested physical therapists who are faculty members in PTA programs are eligible to become Team Leaders for PTA program visits. Physical therapists who are practitioners or PT faculty members can participate on PT program site visits for CAPTE. Those individuals should contact Ellen Price, PT programs manager, at ellenprice@apta.org, about future training opportunities.
