Becoming a PT or PTA


The IPTA is a member driven professional association representing physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy statewide. Our members are some of the most engaged, educated, and philanthropic PT professionals in Illinois; many of which are managers in their practice settings or own private practices. But we interact with more than just our members. Every month consumers, non-members, and prospective students visit our website looking for answers to a variety of questions. Our website and e-newsletters are reaching more people than ever before and we want to share that success with you.

The IPTA is now offering partner packages to meet the needs of various components of the physical therapy puzzle. There are three different types of partnerships: PT Partners, Business Partners and School Partners. Each partnership is designed to foster a strong relationship between you, the IPTA, and the physical therapy professionals of Illinois. As an IPTA partner, you will receive updates on what is happening in Illinois and you will be consulted on these issues. Please take your time in reviewing each opportunity to decide how we can best partner to advance the physical therapy profession in Illinois.

PT Partnership

Through its PT partnership program, IPTA collaborates with organizations (clinics, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies and private practices) to support our vision of revitalizing society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience. PT Partners support the ethical and professional best practice of physical therapy, helping to make Illinois healthcare safer for the patients for whom we care.

PT Partners are consulted on critical and timely issues concerning the payment and policy landscape of Illinois and receive VIP invites to IPTA advocacy events throughout the year. These intimate opportunities to speak with like-minded members and important legislators are a great way to join the IPTA in our pursuit of improving consumer access to physical therapy, fair payment for services, and protecting the scope of PT practice.

There are three PT Partnership levels: Basic, Premier, and Premier Plus. All provide exclusive opportunities for you to promote your organization. Click here to benefits provided with each partnership level.

PT Partners make a monetary contribution to the IPTA. Contributions may be made annually, semiannually, or quarterly.
