Who We Are

The American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT) is a not-for-profit association dedicated to excellence in physical therapist education programs as a whole.

The best minds in academic PT are here.  Our organizational membership includes over 95% of all U.S.-accredited physical therapist programs. We serve and represent the staff of these 242 PT educational institutions, including:

  • faculty,
  • clinical partners, and
  • academic administrators and leaders. 

What We Do

ACAPT develops the entrepreneurial leadership skills of PT academic staff so they can develop tomorrow's physical therapy leaders in health care.

We create methods to benchmark excellence in PT education.

We're expanding and promoting educational research.

We advance innovative clinical education models.

We promote professional and community service.

We collaborate with organizations representing health professional education.

We invite you to engage with ACAPT to define and deliver excellence and innovation in academic physical therapy:

  • ACAPT's eight consortia are forums to focus on specific areas of shared interest.
  • When necessary for ongoing tasks, we've developed standing committees.
  • When large, short-term undertakings are required, we form task forces.
