WCPT is a confederation of national associations representing physical therapists. Individuals are linked to WCPT through these national associations. Only one national organisation per country is eligible for WCPT membership and must meet set criteria before being admitted. WCPT member organisations are grouped into regions according to their geographical position.
WCPT has five global regions, each composed of WCPT member organisations in that geographical area. Read more about each region and its members.
To become a member of WCPT, a national physical therapy association must meet specific criteria laid down in WCPT’s Constitution. Read more about the criteria for membership.

Any association wishing to become a member of WCPT must obtain an application form from WCPT and submit it with specific documents in English. Access more details on the application process.
