Our History is Rich and Purposeful

The formation of the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT) followed a natural evolution within the academy to pursue its deep and abiding commitment to excellence and innovation in the profession. Key steps in the development of ACAPT are captured below as a foundation for emergence of a new and sustaining culture of leadership in academic physical therapy.
