The Academy of Oncologic PT, APTA has several course offerings looking for partners to host. The host facility will be chosen based on the guarantee that they can draw a minimum of 20 registrants. These registrants can come from the host facility or local facilities.
The Academy and Lymphatic Diseases SIG hope to provide members with all opportunities to advance skills, develop professional networks, and promote awareness of lymphedema and oncology rehab. The listing of an event on this calendar does not imply Academy affiliation, promotion, or endorsement.
Check back often as listings will be updated and please contact Lesli Bell (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you know of an event you think should be added!
The Academy of Oncologic PT is interested in developing a list of facilities in all settings (acute care, outpatient and rehabilitation) that would be willing to offer clinical affiliations for students who are interested in oncology.
The Academy will share this list with academic institutions upon request. It will be the responsibility of the academic institution to contact the facility and to develop the clinical affiliation. Placing your facility’s name on the list of potential affiliation sites in no way obligates you to provide a clinical affiliation for a particular academic institution.
This is a great opportunity for the members of the Academy to help spread the word about oncology rehabilitation and to educate future members of the Academy. If you are interested in participating, please send the following information to email@example.com: name of facility, contact person, address, phone number, email address, type of facility, and patient population(s).
Thank you in advance for your willingness to share your knowledge and experience. Questions? Please contact our Secretary, Steve Wechsler, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
