The Federation has full members, corresponding members and honorary members.
Full members are national societies, legal by their national law and/or recognised by their national professional bodies, consisting of therapists who have a recognized state-registered qualification to practice as a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist.
The Society must be open to both Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists.
A country is represented by only one national society.
Each full member retains its own autonomy.
Corresponding members are Physiotherapists or Occupational Therapists from countries who are not yet able to form a national society, legal by their national law and/or recognised by their national professional bodies. There can be only one corresponding member per country.
They have no vote in Council.
Honorary members are individual persons who have been of exceptional merit to the Federation.
To apply to become a member please contact the Secretary who will explain the procedure. Election will take place at the next Council meeting provided all requirements are met.
