IFOMPT2016 Update

Planning for Glasgow 2016 in July 4-8 next year is moving ahead very well. In the last couple of months we have had significant announcements which have really made the conference seem like a reality now!
Registration is open - be sure to book your early bird rate before 4th April.
Abstract submission is open too and we have had excellent interest so far. The deadline for abstract submission is 1st Dec 2015 - be sure to get your submissions in for the chance to present at this fantastic conference. If you are new to the process, we are offering a mentorship programme to help you put together an abstract - further details are available from ifomptmentor@mci-group.com or through the link on the abstract page of the website www.ifomptconference.org
The submission of proposals for focused symposia is also open now, and remains open until Wed 30th Sept. These symposia will form an integral part of this international conference and bring leading experts from around the world together to discuss topical issues - they are a great opportunity to develop and enhance international cooperation, and we have had great interest and submissions already from several high-quality groups.
Further information on all of these, plus details of travel and accommodation are all available on the website. The conference programme will be up on the website in September to help you plan your trip, and we look forward to welcoming you all to Glasgow in July.

News out of South Africa

South Africa has been a founding member of IFOMPT and the country prides itself in producing high-quality physiotherapists.
The current IFOMPT President, Annalie Basson, is proudly South African and she is the current President of the South African Society of Physiotherapists. Dr Ina Diener is a former IFOMPT member delegate.
We currently have 1350 members and present a Clinical Master’s Degree in OMT at two Universities, namely The University of Stellenbosch and The University of the Witwatersrand.
We also present a year-long community-based OMT course in different provinces. This course uses expert clinicians from around the country to teach OMT skills to qualified physiotherapists.
In 2016 the OMT course will be presented in Pretoria and Cape Town. Please contact Anelenie Smit at omtcourse.gec1@omptg.co.za for more detail.
We are proud to announce that the next WCPT congress will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, from 2 – 4 July 2017.
We invite you to come and join us in the beautiful country, South Africa.
