OPTL / WCPT Junior
OPTL is currently working on establishing a network to connect interested Lebanese physical therapy students with each other as well as with their counterparts all around the globe.
An executive committee has been assigned from student representatives of all Lebanese universities offering physical therapy programs. Mainly members are third and fourth year students.
The aim of the network is to early engage physical therapy students in OPTL activities so to encourage, promote and facilitate the exchange of ideas and activities of common interest.
The most important advantage in joining OPTL Junior is to benefit from a free access to OPTL congresses. Furthermore, junior members are provided by OPTL with facilities to participate in the activities of WCPT congresses held every two years.
Aside from these previous benefits, junior members engage in a social program every year to build connections and facilitate integration in the workplace after graduation.
