Comments on CAPTE's PT/PTA Standards due June 20th! 
Attention: Academy of Education Members
CAPTE will be reviewing PT and PTA Standards and Required Elements this year (conducted every 5 years).

The CAPTE portal for comments is open for feedback through June 20th. 
If you have any concerns about the education standards for entry-level PTs or PTAs, please consider submitting comments. Any of our members involved in teaching PT/PTA students in the classroom or clinic or working with new PT/PTA graduates in patient care, have a vested interest in the standards for entry-level education. 
Please forward this notification to your director/supervisor, your institutional administrators, or other relevant stakeholders who might also wish to influence CAPTE's revision process. TIME IS SHORT.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
