Academic institutions collaborating to promote excellence in education, scholarship and research, practice and service

Who is The American Council of Academic Physical Therapy?

The American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT) is a component of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), originally created as a subgroup by the APTA board of directors in August 2010, then renamed ACAPT, during the 2013 House of Delegates.

The purpose of ACAPT is to advance the enterprise of academic physical therapy by promoting the highest standards of excellence. For the purposes of the Council and its activities, academic physical therapy includes all aspects of physical therapist education, including clinical education, and post-professional education.
