The Evidence In Motion (EIM) Institute of Health Professions, created to assist in the continued education of physical therapists, is excited to announce the credentialing of their Sports Physical Therapy Residency Program by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). EIM earned the ABPTRFE seal of approval in June 2012 and will be presented with the official certificate at the 2013 Combined Sections Meeting opening ceremonies. Credentialed residency programs create and promote standards of quality in both the teaching and practice of physical therapy.
“We are thrilled to receive this respected credential from the APTA,” states Dr. Teresa Schuemann, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC, CSCS, EIM Sports Physical Therapy Residency Director. “We believe that post-professional residency training is critical to the future of our profession and the best method for physical therapists to pursue board certification. This prestigious accreditation is a testament to the quality of the Sports Residency Program and other programming that EIM offers to physical therapists seeking post-professional education.”
EIM’s Sports Residency Program is a combination of online learning, hands-on courses, and athletic venue hours. EIM’s program is unique in its ability to provide physical therapists the opportunity to participate in a first-rate post-professional sports residency without moving from their current location or place of employment. The program is designed to:
- Increase the confidence of (sports) physical therapists to provide care to patients with athletic injuries
- Achieve a strong knowledge of preventative and rehabilitative evidence-based sports therapy that can be immediately applied to practice
- Position (sports) physical therapists to achieve board certification in sports physical therapy upon completion of the program
