The American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) is the accrediting body for the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) for postprofessional residency and fellowship programs in physical therapy.
Accreditation is the process used by APTA to ensure the quality of the education that participants receive in residency and fellowship programs in physical therapy. It is a voluntary, nongovernmental, peer-reviewed process that occurs on a regular basis.
ABPTRFE has adopted new quality standards for clinical residency and fellowship programs. These new standards reflect the collaborative efforts of ABPTRFE’s accredited programs, Board members, and industry professionals. Learn more.
