APTA, the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy, and the APTA Academy of Education need your input on current and future physical therapy education.

The three organizations, working together with other education stakeholders as the Education Leadership Partnership, have created a survey aimed at fostering a more global perspective in advancing the physical therapy profession through collaborative visioning and planning for the future of physical therapy education.

The survey is available online and takes about 15 minutes to complete. Responses are due by midnight June 8.
