Gratitude for the work of ACAPT's consortia

Thanks to all the hardworking and innovative leaders & members of ACAPT's consortia for their tireless work in pursuit of academic excellence in physical therapy. 

ACAPT's transition team has been paving the way for new Institutes.

As part of ACAPT's restructuring, ACAPT has been working with current consortia chairs to plan for the new Institutes covering academic advancement, teaching & learning, scholarly inquiry and community engagement.

In 2023, ACAPT initiated three task forces to expand its scope.
