  • International Physical Therapy Organization Seeks Members for Scientific Committee

    APTA members have a unique opportunity to lend their scientific expertise to physical therapy research on an international scale by applying for appointment to the Education Congress Scientific Committee of the European Region of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (ER-WCPT). The committee will oversee the development of the program of the 4th European Congress on Physiotherapy Education, set for November 11-12, 2016, in Liverpool, UK.

    Appointments will be made with attention to a balance of talents, but ER-WCPT is particularly interested in physical therapists with strengths in research/education, research/clinical practice, scientific program planning, publication/presentation, and e-learning. Committee appointments run from 2014 through spring of 2017, and during that time members can expect to attend 1 or 2 quarterly meetings (videoconferencing available) and other duties as assigned. Expenses for meeting attendance will be reimbursed.

    APTA members interested in serving on the committee should submit a CV, letter of support from APTA, and statement (500-word maximum) that addresses previous experience, the ways in which the applicant's expertise will benefit the committee, and ability to devote the necessary time to the project. Deadline for application is November 15, 2013, but APTA members should contact Rene Malone at renemalone@apta.org no later than November 6 to arrange for the required APTA letter of support.

    Appointment decisions will be made by the end of January 2014. Applications and additional questions can be sent to enquiries@csp.org.
