Registration categories

Member: You are only eligible for the “Member” rate if you are a member of a WCPT member organisation.  For a list of WCPT member organisations visit www.wcpt.org/members

Non-PT educator/researcher: WCPT recognises that other professions contribute to physical therapy education and research programmes.  WCPT therefore extends the “Member” rate to non-PT educators/researchers who are presenting at WCPT Congress 2019.

PT assistant: Open to support personnel employed under the direction and supervision of a physical therapist (eg physical therapist assistant, aide, technician or helper, rehabilitation assistant, classroom therapy assistant).

Retired: Physical therapists who are permanently retired from practice are eligible to register at the “Retired” rate.

Entry level student: Students currently enrolled in a physical therapist professional entry level qualifying programme and who are due to graduate in 2019 or after are eligible to register for the “Entry level student” rate. Students who graduate in or before December 2018 are not eligible to register for the “Entry level student” rate. The “Entry level student” rate does not apply to physical therapists in post qualifying graduate programmes or to other graduate students (eg MSc, PhD).  Physical therapist assistant students are also eligible to register for the “Entry level student” rate.

Non-member: If you are not a member of a WCPT member organisation, or your national association is not a WCPT member, or you do not qualify for one of the categories above, you must register for the “Non-member” rate.  For a list of WCPT member organisations visit www.wcpt.org/members
