To promote the development and improvement of orthopaedic physical therapy research at all levels.
With the above purpose in mind, we perform three major functions annually:
- The committee reviews all of all abstracts submitted to the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy for the Combined Sections Meeting (CSM).
- The committee organizes and reviews all external grants submitted to the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy.
- The committee oversees the nomination and selection of awards including the Rose Award for Excellence in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Research.
