AzPTA Award Guidelines and Nominating Forms 

The Arizona Physical Therapy Association (AzPTA) recognizes individuals with various awards to acknowledge the efforts of clinicians, educators and leaders who promote and advance the role of the physical therapy profession.

AzPTA award nominations may be submitted at any time, but we encourage people to submit them by September 1st each year.  If the nominations are submitted after September 1st, the nominations will be considered for the following year.

PT of the Year

A physical therapist who in the past year has demonstrated significant cooperation in the areas of education, legislation, membership, practice and public relations.

PTA of the Year

A physical therapist assistant who in the past year has demonstrated significant cooperation in the areas of education, legislation, membership, practice and public relations.

Pauline Wampler Service Award

To recognize and honor an individual who has made a significant, ongoing and distinguished contribution to the Arizona Physical Therapy Association (AzPTA) through volunteerism.

Golden Goniometer Award

This is a friendly competition among the Physical Therapist and Physical Therapist Assistant programs in Arizona to recognize the program with the highest percentage of student APTA members.  Educators throughout the state promote the importance and benefits of membership to their students, and we hope that clinicians who interact with students do the same.  Being a student APTA member provides an excellent introduction to our professional association, and helps to instill a sense of professionalism in our students.

Since launching this competition in early 2010, we have seen student membership at Arizona schools surge from just under 200 to 300 members! APTA and AzPTA continue to develop and implement new ways to support these students and to prepare them for their future careers.
