One of the benefits of being an active member of the APTA includes opportunities to explore the 18 sections and specialties. Acting upon opportunities to gain insight and mentorship from these sections is of vital importance to us now, as students as we are developing and deciding on what type of clinicians we hope to be in the rapidly approaching future. How many of us know what being a member of a section means? What benefits may come from membership and what value does being a member place on our future as a clinician? What resources can these sections provide to its members and what networking and continuing education do they offer? The people that bring you the #DPTstudent chat each week have recognized these frequently asked questions and have gone straight to the source(s)! We are joined this week by active Private Practice Section (@pps_apta) members Jerry Durham (@Jerry_DurhamPT) and Robert Snow (@RobertSnowDPT), who will be offering us insight into benefits of being a member of the Private Practice Section. This will include mentorship opportunities, practice-building resources, networking opportunities etc. Mark your calendars for this Wednesday at 9pm EST, you won’t want to miss it!
