WCPT Congress Update - November 2018

WCPT Congress Update
November 2018 
Over 2,000 already registered
With the super early bird deadline now passed, over 2,000 delegates have registered for congress.

Thank you to everyone who has registered. We look forward to welcoming you to Geneva.

If you haven't yet registered, you can now register at the early bird rate. Places for courses and clinical visits are selling fast and some have already sold out – so don’t delay!
Book your place on a congress course
Pre- and post-congress courses are selling fast. 

With some courses nearly sold out, now is the time to add a course to your registration. Courses offer a focus on applied knowledge and skills and give delegates an additional opportunity to explore issues in depth, gain practical experience, and learn directly from experts via a range of learning formats.

Courses offer a wide range of subjects. Half, one and two day courses are available, with a number offering support in other languages.
See the full list: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/programme/courses.

Add a course to your registration via the online registration system.

If you are registering from a low or lower middle-income country, WCPT has reserved at least three spaces on each course that will be available at a reduced fee for those delegates. To apply for one of these places enter the course lottery by 31st January: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BZJDFJR. No pre-booking is necessary, but you must be registered for the congress.
Add a clinical visit to your registration
Over 35% of clinical visits have sold out.

Are you attending the whole congress? If so, make the most of your registration and add a clinical visit - a unique opportunity to see how physical therapy is practised in Switzerland. 
physioswiss has arranged clinical visits for congress delegates to a range of public and private physical therapy facilities, across a wide area of interests. Most clinical visits will be supported in English and French and some will offer additional language support.

The Gift of Congress just got bigger
A big thank you to everyone who has made a contribution to the congress bursary programme.  We are delighted to announce that we have already raised a fantastic £32,000. This has come from donations while delegates were registering, abstract submission fees, WCPT’s Incredible Impacts Award for the 2017 congress and other donors.

Your generosity will allow physical therapists from low or lower middle-income countries to attend congress who otherwise wouldn't be able to.

How to donate: there is an option to donate when you register for congress or you can donate via the JustGiving website.

How to apply for a bursary: applicants must complete the online application form by 1st December 2018.
