The 6th annual Student Symposium offers an opportunity for physical therapy, occupational therapy, and athletic training students and professionals to receive hands-on learning, as well as network with industry experts.

The symposium, which is free for all current PT, PTA, OT, OTA, and AT students, will be held March 10 and 24 in separate locations in the Tri-State area. The first course, on March 10th, will be held at 645 Stewart Avenue in Garden City, on Long Island, in New York, and the second one, on March 24th, will be held at 21 Headquarters Plaza in Morristown, New Jersey.

Clinical concepts and hands-on, manual treatment techniques the students can utilize during their clinical affiliations, as well as in a post-graduate professional setting, will be discussed.

Sessions will focus on functional progressions for the lower extremity, upper extremity, and core, as well as an introduction to hand therapy, and other relevant clinical topics.

“We launched the Student Symposium five years ago, as part of our Professional Seminars program, with the goal of providing physical therapy and allied health students with a current state-of-the-art knowledge base they can depend on,” says Rob Panariello, founding partner and chief clinical officer of Professional Physical Therapy, and Professional Seminars faculty, in a media release.

“It’s our way of giving back to the healthcare community, as our passion and commitment to professional development and clinical excellence extends from our clinicians to our students, who are the future of the profession,” he adds.

CEUs are available for athletic trainers and physical therapists/assistants in the New York area.

Registration closes on March 5 for the Garden City location and on March 19 for the Morristown location.
