Earn CEUs from your congress attendance
WCPT has awarded WCPT International Physical Therapy Continuing Education Units (WCPT IPT-CEUs) to congress days and pre- and post-congress courses. 

Details of the WCPT IPT-CEUs allocated will be included on certificates of attendance. 

Individual physical therapists will need to check the continuing professional development requirements in their own country. They are advised to contact their member organisation, or regulatory body, to see if recognition will be awarded for continuing education resulting from attendance at the WCPT Congress and any course. 

For further information see the congress FAQs: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/faqs
Attend the prestigious WCPT Awards Dinner
Tickets are now available for the WCPT Awards Dinner on Thursday 9th May.

Is this your first time at a WCPT Congress?
Is this the first time you're attending a WCPT Congress or maybe it's your first visit to Europe?

If so, WCPT will be offering a "WCPT friends" session in the Indaba zone on the first morning of congress. This is where you will be able to get some tips and insights from experienced WCPT Congress goers and buddy up with delegates who are also new to the congress experience.

If you have already attended a WCPT Congress and remember that slightly overwhelmed feeling then please do join us to offer yourself as a "WCPT friend".

The Indaba session will take place at 10:45 - 11:30 on Saturday 11th May. A further networking session will also be run on Sunday.

If you don't want to wait until congress, whether it will be your first time or you are a regular attendee to WCPT congresses, join the congress Facebook group and reach out to other delegates now. 
 
Congress accommodation   About Geneva
Due to a number of public events taking place in Geneva, if you haven't yet made a reservation we would advise delegates to book accommodation as early as possible.

Use the congress accommodation service to save time, money, and hassle. All those staying at a congress hotel will receive a free public transport ticket. If you would prefer to stay in the centre of Geneva near the lake, public buses are available which will take you directly to the congress centre in approximately 25 minutes.
 
Book now to avoid disappointment: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/registration/accommodation.
