Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Charleston, SC
April 13 – April 14, 2018

The South Carolina Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association (SCAPTA) is the only professional organization representing physical therapists and physical therapist assistants in South Carolina.

The purpose of SCAPTA’s Annual Conference is to foster advancements in physical therapy practice, research, and education. We also have poster presentations, a Membership Meeting, chances to meet with Recruiters and Exhibitors, and social events to facilitate networking, idea exchange, and fun.

    FULL CONFERENCE registration includes:
  • Attendance at your pre-selected educational courses and events (see schedule and session descriptions below)
  • Access to the exhibit hall, platform and poster presentations, and job fair
  • Attendance at the Membership Lunch and Business Meeting, which are free but require registration. You do not have to attend an educational session to come to the Membership Lunch and Business Meeting.
  • If you do NOT plan to attend an educational session but DO want to have free access to the exhibit hall, job fair, Membership Lunch & Business Meeting, and evening events, please select those items on the registration form.
  • Register by March 29 to take advantage of discounted Early Bird registration rates.

    Be sure to have your APTA member id and password ready before registering online. If you are not a SCAPTA member, you must create an account by simply setting up a username and password. This will allow you to register for the conference but will NOT sign you up for SCAPTA and/or APTA membership.

    Please review the list of session descriptions and program schedule found below before registering, so that you may choose the session and events that you plan to attend. Be sure not to schedule yourself for overlapping sessions.

    New this year, CEU certificates will be made available online for all registrants following the conference through APTA’s Learning Center.
