Attention: Academy of Education Members
CAPTE will be reviewing PT and PTA Standards and Required Elements this year (conducted every 5 years).
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.
President, APTA Academy of Education
