APTA National - APTA Future of Physical Therapy Summit Video Contest

Starts: 06-17-2021
Location: Online Opportunity


What does the future of physical therapy look like to you? How will you contribute to our association’s mission of building a community that advances the profession of physical therapy to improve the health of society?

We’re looking for APTA members to submit short videos that answer these questions – and some of the best ones will be used during APTA’s Future of Physical Therapy Summit centennial event on September 13 and shared via APTA’s social media channels.

Contest rules:

  • Videos must be 1 minute or less and submitted using this online form by July 1.
  • Videos should explore the future of physical therapy based on one of the following themes that are aligned with APTA’s mission:
    • Building a community.
    • Advancing the profession of physical therapy.
    • Improving the health of society.
  • The rest is up to you. You can… share your vision for the future, tell us how you’ll be a change-maker, show us what next-century care will look like, engage a patient to share her/his story with you and the profession, or inspire our physical therapy community to action. As long as your video is focused on the future of physical therapy, you’re good to go!

The video must be submitted by an APTA member. See full contest rules.
