Physical Therapist/Physical Therapist Assistants Workforce Data Collection

The Missouri State Board of Registration for the Healing Arts and the University of Missouri, School of Medicine are collaborating to collect workforce data to better understand the characteristics of the physical therapist/physical therapist assistants workforce in Missouri.

To meet the healthcare needs of our population, Missouri needs to assess the areas of practice, quantity, demographic characteristics, and practice locations of our physical therapist/physical therapist assistants workforce.

The collection period will run from November 9, 2019 to January 31, 2020. Data collected through this physical therapist/physical therapist assistants survey will be analyzed by the School of Medicine.

Completion of the survey will take approximately 10 minutes.

This survey is voluntary and anonymous and your answers will not be connected in any way to the data collected for your license renewal.

Continuing Education

PT/PTA Continuing Education Rules

All licensed physical therapists and physical therapist assistants are required to biennially complete thirty hours (30) hours of acceptable continuing education. Hours must be reported to the Advisory Commission each even-numbered year at the time of renewal. The Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) offers a free continuing competence resource called aPTitude. This service includes a free tracking tool to assist physical therapist and physical therapy assistant's track completed continuing competency/continuing education (CC/CE) activities. During the audit of CC/CE, licensees may submit the aPTitude report in lieu of each CC/CE certification of completion. To learn more about this free service visit FSBPT's website.

FSBPT is pleased to announce a new partnership with APTA

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has partnered with us to use aPTitude, a free continuing competence resource that was developed as part of our continuing competence program.

aPTitude is a user-friendly online system that allows licensees and physical therapy licensing boards to track continuing competence and education requirements for license renewal. Course and activity providers are also able to list and manage their activities online. Sharing APTA's Learning Center courses in aPTitude will assist physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy in managing, reporting, and tracking their educational courses.
