Since 1951 the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) has been the global body for the profession. Today it represents more than 350,000 physical therapists through its 112 member organisations, and is the international voice for physical therapy.
On behalf of its members, WCPT undertakes a range of projects and supports international campaigns to promote the physical therapy profession and its contribution to global health. It encourages high standards of physical therapy research, education and practice.
Every two years WCPT hosts the profession's largest international scientific congress showcasing the latest advancements in physical therapy. The next WCPT congress will take place in Cape Town on 2-4 July 2017. This spectacular event brings together more than 3,500 physical therapists and is not to be missed!
