We connect you with peers who share your passion for advancing the profession and transforming society.
Strengthening the physical therapy community is at the core of our association mission.
APTA provides multiple opportunities to find your people, including participation within our chapters and sections, special interest groups, and councils.
We also engage physical therapist assistants and physical therapy students through member leadership groups.
APTA membership is about more than benefits — it's about collaborating to advance the profession.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
APTA's strategic plan includes a goal to foster the long-term sustainability of the physical therapy profession by improving diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Our Community in Motion
APTA members move the association forward, inspiring positive change, and helping us pursue our vision for the physical therapy profession.
Membership and Benefits
Belong to our community of more than 100,000 PTs, PTAs, and students.
APTA volunteer opportunities range from small to large, informal to formal, local to national.
Leadership and Governance
From the Board of Directors to the House of Delegates, APTA members guide our progress.
APTA is so much more than conferences, access to clinical practice guidelines, and opportunities to meet other professionals. APTA is a community, a family, a group of students and professionals who come together to grow and learn from one another; they inspire you to become the best version of yourself.
