Students in physical therapist (PT) and physical therapist assistant (PTA) education programs have a lot on their plates. They must keep up with classes, of course, but on top of that, they have to figure out exactly how they're going to pay for those classes. And, oh yeah, they probably should be thinking about how they'll approach student loan repayments they may face once they’ve earned their degree. At the same time, they need to keep up with related actions from the profession and their association.

It's not easy. But APTA is helping to make life for PT and PTA students a bit less overwhelming.

Recently, the association unveiled a completely revamped Education and Financial Resources for Students webpage—a 1-stop source for information on everything from association and component-sponsored awards to federal student loan forgiveness opportunities. Also included: links to evidence-based practice resources, APTA policies, and the association's Financial Solutions Center—which focuses specifically on financial education and student loan refinancing.
