Student Organizations



There are several student organizations open to physical therapy students! 

The first is the Pre-Physical Therapy Organization (PPTO).  This is a group of undergraduate students interested in and planning to continue their graduate education in physical therapy. It is open to all students at Texas State University.

Each of the classes in the professional physical therapist education program has an organization!
