Welcome - Future of our Profession!
APTA is a community of more than 100,000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students who care about the future of physical therapy, just like you. It’s easy to see how you can get off to a good start with APTA and the Maryland Chapter on your side.  APTA of Maryland membership is the best investment you can make in your education and your career. The Chapter has a Student Special Interest Group (SSIG) that is a group designed to benefit Maryland DPT and PTA students by providing a state-level resource for students to network and develop relationships that will last a lifetime.

New Federal Student Loan Changes Over COVID-19
With lectures and labs being suspended and online learning becoming the norm, physical therapy students have had to adjust to a new normal. But there is some potentially good news when it comes to students who have federal student loans. Addressing student debt burden and loan repayment challenges remains a top priority for APTA. APTA has advocated to Congress to have physical therapists participate in student loan forgiveness programs such as the National Health Service Corps, and APTA's Financial Solutions Center offers valuable tools and information to help members make the best financial decisions possible.

Letter to Students Regarding COVID-19
In times like this, it's more important than ever to remember why we chose the profession of physical therapy, and to look for any opportunity to be a positive force in the health of society.
