Partnership vs Membership

The American Physical Therapy Association and its components, including the Home Health Section, are professional associations serving member physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and physical therapy students. Our first responsibility is to our members in the profession of physical therapy.

Because many agencies, organizations, and individuals allied with physical therapy have an interest in the activities and resources of the Home Health Section, we have created the "Partner Program" in order to build and sustain relationships with allies, as well as to share resources. The Section's Partner Program is not a substitute for membership in APTA and the Section as membership provides physical therapy professionals, para-professionals, and students with information and resources to assist them in their careers. Partners and potential Partners should note that many of the benefits offered by both APTA and the Section are exclusive to members.

If your organization employs physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, or physical therapy students, these professionals (and your organization!) will benefit greatly from their membership in their professional association, the American Physical Therapy Association.

If your organization does not employ physical therapists, or if you simply wish to enhance and expand your access to information about the practice of physical therapy in the home health setting, the Section's Partner Program is for you.

Please note that the Home Health Section Partnership Program is a program of the Home Health Section, not of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
