SIGs Early Professional SIG

The Arizona Physical Therapy Association Early Professional Special Interest Group (EPSIG) exists to create a community for Arizona Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants who are beginning their career to go to for support and professional development as they enter the workforce.

We accomplish this by communicating and distributing pertinent information for early professionals, providing mentorship and networking events, and creating educational opportunities for all early practitioners within the profession of physical therapy.

On October 27th, the Early Professional Special Interest Group hosted a lecture with Dana Tew, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT and Jennifer Fredrich, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT on “Reconciling: Chronic Pain and Manual Therapy – Hands On or Off”. Many new and experienced clinicians attended this talk and left with a better understanding how to utilize concepts with their chronic pain patients.

Upcoming Events


Coming Soon - The Early Professional SIG Membership Program! Are you a new graduate that finds yourself asking, “What do I do now?” Are you an established professional with a desire to help others??

The EP SIG has a place for both of you! Our mentorship program will provide an environment for early and experienced professionals to meet and discuss what to expect in the early years of practice. Mentoring can offer helpful insight and advisement on career development, while bridging the gap between newly established DPT’s/PTA’s and experienced clinicians.
