This is part of our series on the sections of the American Physical Therapy Association. There are section and state chapters; you have to be a member of your state association, but you can choose to be a member of a section based on your area of practice.
Ever wonder what it takes to work in Acute Care? Sharon Gorman, PT, DPTSc, President of the Academy of Acute Care Physical Therapy (AACPT) sits down to chat with 20+ years of experience in the field. We talk about the idiosyncrasies of acute care (no skipping steps), the evolution of acute care PT, how the Academy serves therapists, and, of course, the controversy of mandatory residency. Do you need to have a clinical in acute care, or do you just need to know it? Where is the Academy headed in the future?
