Reasons To Join the APTA

To all you Concorde Physical Therapist Assistant students around the country who might not think it’s worth it to join your professional association, the American Physical Therapy Association, here is a message from Ana Musket, DPT, a graduate of Southwest Baptist University, APTASA MO Core Ambassador and APTA Brand Champion.

“During my first year I had a hard time with the idea of paying annual membership dues to a professional organization because the thought of spending more money was unfathomable; if it wasn’t free, I wasn’t interested. After I finally paid my dues and joined the APTA, I was so thankful that I did. The APTA has enhanced my education and made me feel a part of the PT community. So, I wanted to share 5 resources that I have found helpful in my first year of PT school to help you weigh the cost vs. benefits of joining the APTA!

“Watch my video here and email me at APTASA.CoreMO@gmail.com if you have questions about membership or are interested in getting involved!”

“Concorde was one of my best vehicles that helped me gain the confidence I needed to change my life. … It all started with a vision, a will and Concorde.”

Davina Thomas-Clark | Medical Assistant, Vocational Nurse graduate

“I have taken the MA program and the LVN program. Concorde is a wonderful school. There is a difference between passion and a paycheck, and most of my instructors had a passion for what they do. The program was challenging but well worth it. I love this college!”
