Do You Want To Recognize a Physical Therapist Education Program whose Pediatric Physical Therapy Component Exemplifies Excellence?

If you answered yes to this question then we have an opportunity for you. A team of researchers is conducting a study titled, “Excellence in Pediatric Physical Therapy Education: Teaching for the Future,” funded by the Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy and The George Washington University. The aim of this study is to identify and describe the attributes of excellence and innovation across academic settings for pediatric physical therapy education within professional physical therapist education programs. We are currently seeking nominations for programs to participate in our study.  Nominees can be any CAPTE accredited professional physical therapist program.  Programs can self-nominate or nominated from a stakeholder outside of the program.  

Nomination Letter and Form: For further details regarding the study and the nomination process follow the link to the Nomination Letter and Form (this would be a link).  Please save the Nomination Form onto your computer, write directly into the PDF, resave and send. Submit all completed nomination forms to mbirkmei@gwu.edu.  The deadline for the nomination is January 21st 11:59 EST.

APPT Finalizes Purchase of Pediatric Physical Therapy

Posted on October 17, 2017

In return, WK owned the title Pediatric Physical Therapy and had full copyright on all published content. During contract renegotiations in 2002, the Academy requested and was granted co-ownership of copyright for journal articles.
