  • Physician Owned? Corporate? Independent? Panel Event to Focus on PT Models of Practice

    Few would argue that health care in the United States has experienced significant change over the past few years—but do those changes require a new look at practice models for physical therapists (PTs)? That's the question at the heart of an event cosponsored by APTA and Arcadia University set for the evening of January 9, 2020, 6:00 pm–9:00 pm ET.

    The panel presentation, Practice Revolution: Physician Owned, Corporate, Health Care Systems, Independent, and More, will include presentations from APTA Chief Executive Officer Justin Moore, PT, DPT, and Bill Boissonault, PT, DPT, DHSc, APTA executive vice president of professional affairs, as well as APTA members Jennifer Gamboa, PT, DPT; Patrick Graham, PT, MBA; and Michael Horsfield, PT, MBA. The PT panelists will be joined by neurosurgeon Ryan Grant, MD, and Louis Levitt, MD, MEd, vice president of The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics. Past APTA President Paul Rockar Jr, PT, DPT, MS, will serve as panel moderator.

    The event is open to the public—although RSVPs are required by January 2—and will be held in the Great Room of the University Commons at Arcadia, located about 14 miles north of Philadelphia. Remote participation is available. If you can’t attend in person but want to participate, select the option to participate remotely on the RSVP page. Login information will then be provided. The presentation will also be streamed live and recorded for later download.
