Welcome to HPA The Catalyst, the Section on Health Policy & Administration of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)

HPA The Catalyst is a professional association for physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students. We are a specialty component of the APTA, but a separate association with our own Board of Directors, staff, and location. We serve approximately 2,400 HPA/APTA members with special interests in the areas of Global Health, Technology, Leadership, Management, and Payment and Practice.

HPA The Catalyst has two special interest groups (SIGs): the Global Health SIG and the Technology in Physical Therapy SIG. We also have three catalyst groups: ProBono Catalyst Group, LGBTQ+ Catalyst Group and the Beyond Clinical Practice Catalyst Group.
