21 New Program Growth Academic Council, APTA Position Statement

22 V-4 Whereas, there will be increased pressure to educate more physical therapists due to increased market demand including the need for increased access with health care reform; Whereas, market demand has been the catalyst for the expansion of existing programs and development of new physical therapist education programs; Whereas, there is a documented shortage of required resources in physical therapist education, including program directors, qualified faculty, and clinical instructors at clinical education sites; and Whereas, this resource shortage can compromise the quality of physical therapist education in the United States;

23 Resolved, that institutions must have in place an appropriate budget, a qualified director and faculty, necessary clinical education sites and commitments, and all the necessary physical resources for physical therapist entry-level education, before an institution approves expansion of an existing physical therapist education program or develops a new physical therapist education program. Resolved, in order to meet the societal needs for more physical therapists, the Council supports increased class size of established programs that have all the appropriate resources.
