Student Conclave

This is the most exciting time to be a PT or PTA in California in recent history.

Join us for the California Student Conclave March 28 at Azusa Pacific University

Our profession has advanced to the doctorate level, achieved direct access and we are recognized as the experts in human movement and function. The future of physical therapy is now in your hands as upcoming new professionals. CPTA wants to make sure that you have every tool you need to successfully enter the workforce and continue advancing our profession. Network with PT and PTA students, attend cutting-edge lectures, meet recruiters and see how you can get involved with CPTA and make a difference.

This event will bring nearly 150 PT and PTA students representing over 25 schools to one location giving students the opportunity to prepare for their futures post-graduation and start networking today!

APTA Student Members can register at the early registration rate of $60 before March 6; Student Non-Member rate is $90. After March 6, the onsite registration rate is an additional $25. 

Need some financial assistance?

We invite PT and PTA Professionals, CPTA Districts, PT and PTA Programs and businesses to purchase Scholarships on behalf of students so that they can attend this year. By purchasing a scholarship, you can help a student that works in your clinic, attends your lectures, or that volunteers at District events attend Conclave. These students are the future of our profession and we want to make sure it is a bright one! Submit your scholarship online or complete the form.
Are you a student CPTA member? Why not ask your District to sponsor your trip to Conclave? Most districts budget for student travel expenses, you just have to reach out. Contact your District Chair!
