The Research Intensive Programs in Physical Therapy (RIPPT), a component of the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT), has created this website to list PhD programs that are suited for the training of physical therapists.
We are particularly interested in listing programs where physical therapists can serve as the primary research advisor of the students.
If if you have a program you would like listed and are a member of the RIPPT consortium of ACAPT, please email Buford.email@example.com to request instructions. Member programs in the RIPPT are required to share an annual report listing all research publications from the program as well as all extramural grant funding. This information will be published for public view.
If you note an error in your listing and need to make a change, email the correction to Buford.firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you find this site useful. Thank you for helping us train the future leaders of our profession.
