Because you want to be the best PT you can be, you can accelerate your professional growth and development in diagnosis, manipulation, exercise prescription and clinical decision making through formal Residency and Fellowship training. With a combined schedule of patient care and didactic instruction, as well as lab and clinical mentoring, these programs offer the highest level of postgraduate training available. Working under a clinical mentor can significantly advance your skills and clinical maturity. With two options for residency training — Orthopedic or Sports Therapy — you can decide on the best track to meet your career goals. Both residency programs qualify you for admission to the Manual Therapy Fellowship program for the most advanced level of education in diagnostics, manual therapy and rehabilitative exercise.
