For the second time around, it is with great pride that the Philippines will once again welcome physical therapy students coming from Asian countries to gather for the long-awaited annual event of the Asia Physical Therapy Students Association.
The Asia Physical Therapy Students Association is a constitution formed by Asian countries that aims to promote regional cooperation and interactions among physical therapy students in Asia,
expand physical therapy students’ horizons and to improve the environment of PT education, and to enhance unique regional characteristics and international competitiveness for PT students in Asia (APTSA, 2016). The annual congress is an avenue for physical therapy students and professionals to share their knowledge on physical therapy in the context of their respective countries. Participants are expected to come from Hong kong, Indonesia, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore and many more. Speakers from Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, and the
Philippines will be giving talks on their area of specialties. This year’s theme for the 9th APTSA Congress is entitled, “9th APTSA Congress: Emerging PT Practices”, and this is set to be held at the University of Batangas this August 17-19, 2018.
