A consortium is comprised of individuals affiliated with institutional members of the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT) who share common interests based upon their program affiliation. Examples of consortia consist of, but are not limited to, Directors of Clinical Education and Clinical Faculty, individual members from like institutions (based on Carnegie classification, public or private institution, etc.), shared geographical location, similar curricular models, etc.
The role of the consortium is to provide a forum for institutional members of the physical therapist education community to gather and disseminate information relative to a specific area of shared interest and to have a line of communication within the ACAPT, particularly with the Board of Directors.
Because a consortium consists of institutional members of ACAPT with a voting representative, a consortium will not hold voting privileges within the ACAPT.
A consortium provides a forum for institutional members of the physical therapist education community to gather and disseminate information relative to a specific area of shared interest.
A sub-committee of the ACAPT BoD to include the Finance Officer, Vice President, or Secretary and 2 Directors will review the Application and will approve it for consideration by the ACAPT BoD, ask for further clarification, or deny the formation of the Consortium.
Applications approved by the sub-committee are considered by the ACAPT BoD at its next meeting.
Applications that have been denied by the sub-committee may be appealed to the ACAPT BoD by the ACAPT Representatives who submitted the application.
