Professional Mentoring

iMAP is the IPTA's mentoring program. iMAP pairs seasoned PT professionals with new practice professionals, students and early career members (less than 5 years’ experience) for a mentoring relationship.


IPTA offers members two ways to earn FREE CE credits: #THIRDTHURSDAY events and our monthly research webinars. Visit these pages to see what's next on the agenda.

Student Special Interest Group (SSIG)

IPTA student members have their own group page and their own Facebook group where they can connect with their peers.


In free CE opportunities alone,
your APTA/IPTA membership pays for itself!

During the course of one year, you can earn up to 20 hours in FREE CE through IPTA’s monthly #THIRDTHURSDAY events (virtual or live attendance) PLUS an additional 10 hours in FREE CE through virtual attendance at our monthly research webinars.

In addition, APTA offers FREE CE live and on demand webinars through the APTA Learning Center.

With the cost of CE courses ranging from $35-$100 per credit hour, 30 hours of FREE CE would cover the cost of your membership!
