Visionary and passionate leaders of the past in physical therapy education have achieved many remarkable successes for the profession. Although there is an uncertain future in health care and higher education, there will be opportunities for leaders to imagine innovative models and new strategies that can better align with the changing demands of practice. Specifically, this profession "seeks to transform society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience". To achieve this vision, graduates of physical therapy programs must be capable of functioning side-by-side with their colleagues while adapting in times of sea change. Such an all-encompassing transformation will require leaders who are empowered to create new synergies and partnerships, can anticipate and navigate change within a rapidly shifting landscape, welcome and embrace uncertainty, and are willing to challenge the status quo and time-honored traditions to advance physical therapy education and the profession.

1. Discuss lessons learned from past leaders in the evolution and maturation of physical therapy education.
2. Discuss critical sea changes on the horizon for higher education and healthcare.
3. Describe leadership challenges of managing higher education traditions contrasted with a rapidly changing environment.
4. Envision how shared leadership models in physical therapy education can cultivate new relationships and partnerships, promote synergies, and facilitate creative and innovative possibilities, given an unpredictable future for higher education and healthcare.
