Continuing Education

  • 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. 

    The USC Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy is recognized as an approval agency and continuing education provider by the Physical Therapy Board of California. CEU's from our courses can be used to fulfill state requirements for licensure renewal.

    Licenses expiring after October 31, 2010 will require 15 contact hours of continuing education (1.5 CEU's)
    Licenses expiring after October 31, 2011 will require 30 contact hours of continuing education (3.0 CEU's)
