About the symposium..

Created in conjunction with Professional’s Clinical Affiliation Program the Annual Student Symposium offers the opportunity for Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Athletic Training students to learn about current clinical concepts and treatment techniques.

What attendees had to say...


I learned a lot at the symposium. I enjoyed having the opportunity to bring together so many different programs.
I liked that there was a variety of topics that was covered, but that each had somewhat of an overlap between them.



Presenters really knew what they were talking about. Very concise presentations and great examples/case studies.
