Practice

As the state professional association for physical therapist, PTAG supports all advancements of practice: advocacy, research and employment.

During the Legislative season, we advocate for changes that will benefit the bottom lines of your clinics and the quality of care of your patients. This is not possible without the support of the Georgia Physical Therapy Political Action Committee (GA PT PAC).

We provide funding for research and scholarships for future clinicians through our Research Workgroup and Georgia Foundation for Physical Therapy.

We encourage work/life balance and personal/professional growth to our members through our Employment Opportunities listings.

Employment Opportunities

employmentPTAG provides an online employment listing service for the public. Logged-in Members can view the job postings.
