Student SIG

The APTA Pennsylvania Student Special Interest Group (SIG) consists of PT/PTA students from various Pennsylvania schools. The student run group provides networking and learning opportunities to SPT/SPTAs across the state of PA, bringing added value to your APTA Pennsylvania membership! The primary purpose of this group is to advertise upcoming student events and connect students from all PT/PTA schools in the state of Pennsylvania and in your area. Student members are auto-enrolled into the Student SIG. If you would like to opt out, please contact the APTA Pennsylvania Office.
