Virtual Academic Faculty (AF) SIG Meeting

PTA Education Summit -- Engage, Envision, Evolve
The APTA Academy of Education is conducting a three-phase summit on the future of PTA education. The PTA Education Summit is designed to address current challenges in PTA education, with the goal of formulating prioritized recommendations for future work that will prepare PTAs to better meet the demands of contemporary physical therapy, thus strengthening the PT/PTA team.

Let YOUR voice be heard! Everyone with an interest in the role and education of physical therapist assistants is invited to participate in Phase 2 from November 1 to December 15, 2021. This phase of the summit is a virtual asynchronous format that allows participants to engage from any location with internet access during the times that fit with personal schedules. It is important to have broad stakeholder engagement of clinicians, educators, administrators, patients and students, so please share this invitation with others.

The modules in Phase 2 are interactive lessons that promote a shared understanding of PTA history, education, role & scope of work, from which to engage with key questions designed to identify the priorities and future work needed in PTA education. The qualitative and quantitative data generated from Phase 2 will inform the recommendations and priorities generated in Phase 3, which is scheduled as a virtual meeting of approximately 35 stakeholder representatives on February 25 & 26, 2021. Volunteers interested in Phase 3 are required to participate and complete the Phase 2 modules.

Applications for Phase 3 are available through the Volunteer Portal.
Advanced Registration Ends on Friday, December 17, 2021
