  • Mission

    Our mission is to promote professional excellence, clinical specialization and lifelong learning by providing the highest quality clinical and evidence-based educational programs to our clinical instructors and the global community of physical therapists across the full spectrum of career development needs. We currently offer short courses and custom courses for licensed physical therapists.

    Licenses expiring after October 31, 2011 will require 30 contact hours of continuing education (3.0 CEU's)
