Research in the time of COVID: adaptations and opportunities

ACAPT's Research-Intensive Programs in Physical Therapy (RIPPT) promotes academic excellence by strengthening the community of research-intensive physical therapy programs in ACAPT. Individual members of ACAPT member institutions can join RIPPT for free

This month’s 60-minute seminar is focused on the impact and lasting effects of COVID-19 on rehabilitation research and researchers.

Learning objectives:  The participant will reflect and identify:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on rehabilitation research – challenges and opportunities.
  • Pivoting research to another population, in this case, the outcomes of COVID-19 infection.
  • Possible “virtual” research practices and mentorship that may be carried forward into our PhD education programs.


  • Mary Shall, PT, PhD (Virginia Commonwealth University)
  • Carole A Tucker, PT, PhD (University of Texas – Medical Branch)


  • Stacey Dusing, PT, PhD (University of Southern California)
  • Rachel Deer, PhD (University of Texas – Medical Branch)
