Student members as a collective group within the association governing body are referred to as the Student Assembly (SA), an APTA component comprised of all student members who focus on issues relating to students. The Student Assembly serves as the "voice" for physical therapist and physical therapist assistant students and represents students from every accredited or developing education program across the country.
The Student Assembly was established to represent the concerns of students throughout the country in our evolving health care system. Student involvement in association activities is paramount to the future of the physical therapy profession. Involvement in the Student Assembly is a perfect opportunity for students to learn about issues, become involved, and meet lifelong acquaintances. All students must work toward a common goal; that is, to learn about the profession and how to help advance the profession as we move toward managed care.
