Call for Workshop


    The 13th Singapore-International Physiotherapy Congress (SIPC) 2024 welcomes the submission of high-quality workshop proposals.  The theme of the congress is “Advancing the Frontiers of Physiotherapy: Towards a Healthier SG”.

    WHAT is a workshop?

    Duration: The workshop is either a 2 hour or 4-hour session delivered in English before the congress. The workshop can be delivered individually or by a group of up to 4 registered delegates.

    Aim: The workshop aims to promote and enhance opportunities for knowledge transfer, skills development and collaborative learning in a particular topic.

    Delivery mode: The workshop involves a combination of delivery modes including theory sharing, discussion, hands-on sessions, question and answer session, group work and others. There is usually a high level of audience participation and interaction between audience and workshop facilitator.

    Differences: Workshops differ from symposiums in that workshops are targeted at a smaller audience and tend to be more hands-on.
