APTA sections are your link to the resources that you need to stay current in expertise areas and the best way to connect with others who share your interests — including some of the profession's most influential thought leaders.

APTA sections, some also referred to as academies,  focus on a wide range of areas, from specific types of physical therapy to broader policy areas and patient populations. No matter what your interest is there's probably a section for you.
