Frequently Asked Questions
The Rehab Tech Summit is a virtual conference to be held over three days, with up to 50 sessions on topics of interest to those curious about the intersection of rehabilitation and technology. The summit is specifically targeted towards rehabilitation professionals, namely Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech-Language Pathologists. The summit hopes to empower and encourage therapists with all levels of practice and from all areas of practice to move towards non-clinical roles involving technology or adopting technology for use in their clinical practice.
The Rehab Tech Summit will be streamed through a virtual conference platform. You will receive an access code a few days prior to the conference with information on how to login. All of the sessions will be accessible to you on the platform. You can login from anywhere and at any time. Unless you join a live meeting or networking, you will not be on camera.
The sessions range in length from 30-90 minutes long and will be scheduled throughout the three day period. Most sessions will be pre-recorded with the presenter available for questions via chat. Some sessions will be live and speakers will do a live Q&A. A few sessions will be live and interactive, offering the opportunity to interact with participants and speakers through breakout rooms. Descriptions of our sessions can be found here.
The sessions have been organized around four key tracks: student, career growth, tech-curious and inventor. A description of each of these tracks can be found here. If you have a specific track that resonates with you, you can build your schedule around that track and know that the content being provided will match that.
Each session will have a marker letting you know which of these four tracks it relates to and you’ll be able to build your schedule or determine which sessions would be valuable to you, based on these markers.
The format for the sessions, regardless of track, can be in one of three formats: career pathway interviews, skill-building workshops, and healthtech life seminars.
Career Pathway interviews are 1:1 interviews with clinicians who have transitioned from clinical to non-clinical roles. They explain their story, how they got to where they are, and will provide you with key take-aways so that you can get there too!
Skill-building workshops are sessions by leaders in the field who provide entry-level education on topics that we don’t learn in rehab school! A lot of these are skills that you may need when entering a non-clinical role. How do you start a business? How do you build an app? What is product management? Can I do user research? These are all questions we hope to answer through these sessions.
Healthtech Life seminars are sessions that explore the company and culture of industry life. Most of these are live panels with startup folks who will share the real story of startup culture.
- We have partnered with OT Potential who are giving all attendees a free 30 day membership of the OT Potential Club, their evidence based practice platforms. OTs will have access to 7 CEU hours through this partnership.
- You will have the opportunity to self-submit through your state association for several of our sessions for additional CEUs.
- We are also pleased to provide you FREE ACCESS to Premli, the CEU tracking program. This will support tracking of CEUs and all components you will need for self-submission.
After each session is played at it’s scheduled time, it will become available to watch, at your convenience, from anywhere you’d like. The sessions will be available to watch on demand for 90 days after the summit ends!
You will have a chance to hear from speakers from multiple companies and roles within technology (check out our speaker page for more information and bios). Our skill building track has courses that introduce you to UX design, product and project management, gaming applications as well as creating your own rehab product. In addition, you’ll hear from career coaches and resume builders on how to best position yourself for a role transition from healthcare to tech.
The Summit will provide insight on the possibilities for a future role in tech as well as provide guidance on how to best leverage technology in your current role in the clinic, helping you to explore technologies you may be drawn to and build relationships you can leverage later on.
Given the possibilities for therapy professionals in technology fields as health tech continues to grow, the Summit will give you an opportunity to see how other therapists have used their clinical expertise and knowledge to move into positions within technology companies. You will learn how to set up a Capstone experience in tech (OTD students) and generally explore different applications for rehabilitation technology. As a bonus, you’ll receive a guide to clinical practice areas to consider if you are interested in a future position in technology.
