    What are the Benefits of the PT Compact?

     
    View Fullscreen

    The PT compact brings a lot of value for both clinicians and facilities. With increased portability of the license, clinicians will be able to help fill shortages in staffing across the country. This will only make physical therapy easier to access for patients. It truly is a win-win for everyone involved.

    What States are Part of the PT Compact?

    The states in yellow in the map below are currently issuing compact privileges which means that PTs and PTAs in good standing in their home state (your home license must be in a state that's part of the compact) can apply to get licensed and immediately travel to any state issuing licenses. As other states begin issuing licenses, your ability to travel across the country will be greatly enhanced.
