Recent Accomplishments

In 2017, we accomplished the following:

  • Participated in an Education Research Strategy Meeting with APTA and the Education Section that has resulted in multiple groups working on:
    • Creation of a conceptual framework to guide education research, and adoption of a set of physical therapy-specific entrustable professional activities (EPAs) to guide professional and postprofessional development, including a self-assessment process for practicing physical therapists, will be catalysts to bridge this gap
    • Creation of a community of education researchers to act as mentors and to provide continued learning opportunities in educational research, known as the Education Research Network.  We held our first Education Research Networking Breakfast at CSM in New Orleans and it was a great success!
