online - the Europe Region World Physiotherapy 5th Congress

Don’t miss the Early Bird registration deadline – 31st of July 2020


Every 4 years the Europe Region World Physiotherapy organises a conference dedicated to Physiotherapy Education and its impact on the profession.
This year you can be part of it without the need for the high expenses. If you are an educator, you can’t miss the opportunity! Be a part of our education community.
Are you an educator? A manager? A physiotherapist who think it’s important to discuss topics beyond the clinic walls? Join us for exactly such a meeting...
For the first time, the European Region Congress will be held as an entirely online meeting that will offer the physiotherapy community the possibility for educational exchanges and scientific news.
The online platform will be launched on the 11th of September 2020. It will have the same content as the in-person version and will be accredited for participation.
