Top Associations & Networks for Physical Therapists

Physical therapy national associations or provider networks give PTs access to risk management education, best practices in patient care, as well as peer networks to advance their career

Being a member of a physical therapy association or network, whether at a national level or belonging to a local chapter, provides physical therapists with access to continuing education, annual conferences, newsletters full of up-to-date industry information, best practice advice, a network of peers to connect with, as well as local networking events to attend. CM&F has protected the personal livelihood of physical therapists for many years with superior physical therapy liability insurance.

To show our appreciation to those professionals who show dedication to their career by participating in membership associations for physical therapists, we often will extend a discount, pending regulatory approval by state agencies, to members for our comprehensive, affordable physical therapy malpractice insurance coverage. Below is a list of physical therapy associations for you to check out as you look to expand your career or knowledge of the profession.
