Key sessions for congress announced

WCPT is pleased to announce the opinion leaders and innovators in physical therapy who will present the key sessions at the WCPT Congress 2017. 


Seventeen focused symposia will be presented featuring over 75 prominent international speakers from across WCPT's five regions. High quality speakers have been selected, covering cutting edge topics of vital importance for the profession across a wide variety of practice and research areas and policy perspectives. Focused symposia are always a popular feature of WCPT congresses, drawing large audiences, and providing the opportunity not just to hear from world authorities, but to engage with them in discussion.
