Top 5 reasons to attend the Physical Therapy Education Leadership Conference (ELC)

Jul 19, 2022

  1. Join the best minds in PT education at the ONLY conference devoted specifically to excellence & innovation in physical therapy education. 

    You'll have plenty of opportunities to network with your peers and develop new connections. You'll be able to participate in sessions and informal gatherings to discuss contemporary issues and help everyone do their jobs even better.  You can even learn how you may follow a career path into academia.

  2. Over 60 sessions cover best practices & evidence-based updates about how to best educate PT students in the clinic and classroom.

    You'll learn new teaching skills and trends - and you'll walk away with countless tips to help your students get the most out of their education.

    Keynote speaker Dr. Michael Blackwell, DVM, MPH will lead the annual Dr. Geneva R. Johnson Forum to inspire & motivate you around the topic: Social responsibility in physical therapy: Are we there? 

  3. A pre-conference mini-GAMER workshop will help clinicians transition into research and grant-writing.

  4. Nearly 70 posters will cover the latest research and innovations within academic & clinical PT education. 

  5. Exhibitors are focused on meeting the needs of PT educators.  Many vendors say this is the only conference they attend annually.  See sponsorship & exhibitor information.
