This Section was created to promote the education of graduate students in matters relevant to clinical and academic training. It also informs the professional community about graduate student activities. The Section advocates for the professional development of graduate students during their clinical and academic training and provides a network of graduate students in the state of Illinois. Mentoring opportunities and special workshops are provided on an ongoing basis.

What’s in it for me? That’s a good question and one that is frequently asked by students who tend to focus on other matters of importance such a course work and clinical training. While it may sometimes be difficult to look farther into the future at this stage of the game, taking a moment to do so will reveal the importance of maintaining a close working relationship with the local community of professionals which may prove to be a key element to your success after graduation. Still not convinced? Contact current IPAGS Chair, Morgan Ferris, at to learn more about the important benefits to becoming a student member of the IPA.
