Virtual Event

2-Day Virtual Residency Fair hosted by the SSIG

Aired November 14 and 17. Replay webinar below.

Join us for a two-day VIRTUAL Residency Fair hosted by the APTA Pelvic Health Student Special Interest Group (SSIG)!

What is a physical therapist residency?
A Physical Therapist Residency is a planned program of post professional education for licensed PTs. Residencies are overseen by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE). Residency curricula are developed from the Description of Specialist Practice (Women´s Health DSP) and includes didactic instruction and mentored clinical practice. Residencies generally range from 9-12 months in length. Upon completion, the PT resident should be prepared to provide skilled care for patients in women’s health and to take the Women’s Health Certified Specialist (Board-Certified Women’s Health Clinical Specialist) exam upon completion. APTA highly advocates completing a residency program. As more programs are developed across the country, potential applicants will have an increased opportunity to complete a residency program. Those physical therapists deciding to complete a post-professional program and sit for the specialist exam are more marketable as specialized practitioners.

Recording: These sessions will be recorded and a recording will be provided to registrants within 48 hours after the webinar airs. Please make sure to still register to receive your free recording.

Student Special Interest Group

Special Interest Group (SIG) is a sub-community within the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge or learning where members can connect, collaborate and help develop solutions within their particular topic area or produce new educational resources and networking opportunities. The Academy currently has 3 established SIGs. Each SIG consists of Board of Directors who each meet virtually year-round to facilitate discussions, problem-solve and develop new resources to members.

The SSIG provides a forum to connect physical therapy students from across the nation on issues and topics relevant to you as a student or an rising early-professional. Need advice on applying to a residency program or need tips on how to pay off your student loans? The SSIG is here to help guide you and direct you to helpful resources!
