Monday, March 02, 2020 PT, PTA Education Leadership Institute Accepting Applications for Award-Winning Program Being a director for a PT or PTA education program can seem as lonely as it is overwhelming — but it doesn't have to be that way. Again in 2020, APTA is inviting a select group of emerging and current program directors to its Education Leadership Institute, a program that provides opportunities to learn from mentors and each other in ways that will enhance their own work and strengthen the profession. Applications are being accepted through March 15, 2020. The yearlong program, also known as ELI, uses a blended learning approach (online and onsite components) to help directors in physical therapy education programs develop the skills and resources they need to become innovative, influential, and visionary leaders. The institute is highly rated by past participants and in 2019 earned national recognition from the American Society of Association Executives for its innovative programming. ELI is a collaborative effort of APTA, the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy, the Academy of the Physical Therapy Education, and the Physical Therapist Assistant Educators Special Interest Group. It is accredited by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education. Considering the fellowship experience? Check out video testimonials of ELI graduates. Questions?
