Student Special Interest Group
A 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.
