Calling all physical therapists! February is coming to an end but this week, APTA is hosting its annual Combined Sections Meeting in San Diego, CA.

Here’s what you should know before attending:
What to Expect from APTA CSM 2023
When: Thursday 2/23-Saturday 2/25
Where: San Diego, CA
The APTA CSM is an amazing opportunity to meet and collaborate with other physical therapists from around the country in an in-person, interactive forum. Organized by APTA’s 18 sections and academies, the event features over 300 educational sessions to educate and inform you about industry news, trends, and expert resources.
Not only will you have access to industry-leading resources for practical career development, but you’ll also have the opportunity to earn up to 1.8 CEUs (18 contact hours/CCUs) by attending sessions throughout the week.
For those of you who want to experience the quality knowledge that CSM has to offer but cannot attend the in-person event—APTA has you covered! There will be on-demand access to over 100 recorded sessions from the event, from 3/15-4/15.
This on-demand option is an incredible opportunity to soak up industry knowledge virtually and grow your career at home. Attendees who sign up for the on-demand sessions will also have the option to earn up to 1.8 CEUs while experiencing the available virtual sessions.
In addition to scheduled programming, you’ll have access to APTA’s exhibit hall, where you can explore hundreds of exhibiting companies showcasing their products and services centered on physical therapy—options to view posters, platform sessions, and after-hours demos are also available!
While You’re in San Diego
There will be plenty of free time throughout the week to enjoy the beautiful beachside attractions of San Diego around scheduled CSM programming. The convention will be located at the San Diego Convention Center, a prime location to experience the sights and attractions in the heart of the city—A few that APTA suggests include:
- Take in San Diego’s Museum Month – Admission to 40+ Museums is Half Off
- Explore Balboa Park
- Walk the Waterfront and Tour the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier
