APTANJ is recruiting speakers for its educational series, district meetings and conferences.

Educational Series programs are held at the APTANJ office in Robbinsville or other smaller facilities. The APTANJ office is conveniently located near NJ Turnpike Exit 7A in Mercer County. Our facility provides a professional atmosphere that can accommodate a maximum of 24 – 36 participants (depending on the type and length of program), and there is no need for the use of an intimidating  microphone. This cozy atmosphere allows participants to interact with their colleagues and is the ultimate setting for building one’s professional network.

Do you have information that would appeal to a niche market? Are you an experienced clinician who would love to share the knowledge you’ve accumulated over the years regarding a specific concentrated practice? Are you a new educator who’s comfortable in front of students, but wants to expand your presentations to colleagues in the field? Are you looking for a way to fine tune your presentation before taking it to a regional or national level? The APTANJ Educational Series is a great way to expand your comfort zone.

Did you know that you could earn continuing education (CE) credits when you prepare and present a Board-approved continuing professional education course, program or seminar?  Actually, you earn two (2) credits for each contact hour of a new* presentation …up to a maximum of 12 credits.1

Acceptable course offerings should have significant educational or practical content which deal with matters related to the practice of physical therapy or with the professional responsibilities or ethical obligations of licensees, such as the following:

  1. Patient/client management;
  2. Appropriate standard of physical therapy care;
  3. Patient safety;
  4. Application of new technology to physical therapy practice;
  5. Patient communication;
  6. Promotion of ethical practices;
  7. Knowledge of changing health care system;
  8. Clinical instructor credentialing; and
  9. Physical therapy practice management, administration and professional issues. 1

The APTANJ also invites more experienced speakers to present at district meetings (held three times a year for each district), conferences (twice a year) and occasional larger educational meetings.

To submit your speaker proposal, please download the APTANJ Request for Speaker Proposal and return it to the APTANJ.  The document outlines requirements in order for APTANJ to evaluate your program. Keep in mind that all programming must support evidence-based practice, which you can do by making sure you include as part of your application at least five peer-reviewed references that have been published within the past 5 years. If you have questions after reviewing the APTANJ Request for Speaker Proposal, please feel free to contact APTANJ's Programming Chair.


*“new” means a course, program or seminar that the licensee has not taught previously in any educational setting.
