Society Committee iCSP

Are you a member of your university's physiotherapy society committee (or taking the steps to start one)? If so, sign-up to the Student Physio Societies iCSP. Here you can:

  • find out what other physio societies are doing across the UK
  • share resources and ideas
  • ask (and respond to) questions from other members
  • hear about the latest opportunities and events.

If you are a society committee member and do not have access to this iCSP, please contact
