Who We are  

CPTA+STUDENTS.jpg

Our Mission

The California Student Special Interest Group is a student run organization that provides a platform for PT and PTA students to meet, share ideas, and promote interests regarding the field of physical therapy, the CPTA, and the APTA. Our aim is to promote the participation of students in CPTA events and initiatives, represent the interests of students in state government affairs, and prepare members for future leadership roles in the profession. Ultimately, we look to empower students to take ownership of their student experience while providing tools for success.


Our Vision

Our vision is to support SPTs and SPTAs by creating opportunities for academic enrichment, professional advocacy, and clinical skills development.
