APTA is asking active physical therapist members to consider serving on a Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) examination committee. Under the 1989 Transfer Agreement of the physical therapy licensing examination and a more recent settlement agreement, APTA is entitled to seat candidates for at least 40% of the positions on the FSBPT Examination Development Committees. This year APTA will be providing 1 nominee for the Examination Development Committee-PT (EDC-PT) and 1 nominee for the Item Bank Review Committee-PTA (IBRC-PTA).
Experience as National Physical Therapy Examinations (NPTE) item writers or American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) writers is desired but not required. For the EDC-PT, the nominee must have expertise in musculoskeletal or acute care. For the IBRC-PTA, the nominee must have expertise in integumentary or cardiovascular/pulmonary.
To be considered for nomination, complete and submit a personal information form and a current résumé/CV by May 30 to Brandy Bradley in the Department of Practice. Also contact Brandy Bradley with any questions.
