The review reflects the evolution of a comprehensive, collaborative approach to physical therapy education issues.
The Education Leadership Partnership's 2019 annual report, now available, tracks a year in which the group moved its agenda forward on multiple fronts — and did so with a commitment to inclusion and empowerment.
In its report, ELP outlines work done as a whole and by way of five strategy groups focused on education research, educational outcomes, academic-clinical partnerships, essential resources for education programs, and clinical education. The review also describes the development of the ELP's report on student debt released in April.
ELP comprises representatives from the three founding member organizations as well as ex-officio nonvoting members representing the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education, the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education, and the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy. Representatives from various areas of the clinical community — private practice, veterans, acute care, and health systems — also participate in the partnership.
