One of the most important excellence of the Physiotherapy Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta is community physiotherapy can be expanded to boost the physical therapy profession. There is a need for opportunities for students, teachers and physiotherapists to share information, disseminate science, and create an international research collaboration network.
In 2021, Department of Physiotherapy, Faculty of Health Sciences, Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta is proud to host a virtual symposium and call for paper called the Academic Physiotherapy Conferences 2021 (APC 2021). The theme of this symposium is “Innovation of Community Physiotherapy on Increasing Physical Activity during Pandemic Covid-19”. We hope such work will be an essential mechanism for the innovation of research. This symposium should provide a forum for graduate students, teachers, and physical therapist to disseminate the information obtained from research and to create a further national and international research network in the field of physical therapy.
