What is the PT MACS?

The Physical Therapist Manual for the Assessment of Clinical Skills (PT MACS), 2nd Edition describes the skills that a newly graduated physical therapist must be able to perform in order to engage in safe and effective practice. The skills in the PT MACS are based on (1) entry-level physical therapist education criteria as defined by A Normative Model for Physical Therapist Education, (2) standards of practice, elements of patient/client management and terminology as defined by The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice 3.0, and (3) standards of professional behavior initially defined as the Generic Abilities.
