The directory of board-certified specialists is a portal that allows consumers, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and other health care professionals to find PTs that have achieved specialist certification from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.
APTA members who are specialists have the added layer of integration with the "Find a PT" web portal that provides consumers with a pathway in which to find physical therapists. This directory is housed on the ChoosePT.com website.
