What sets UM-Flint’s Clinical Physical Therapy Certificate and Residency Programs Apart from Others?
UM-Flint’s Clinical Physical Therapy Certificate and Residency Programs assist practicing physical therapists with their DPT to prepare for ABPTS Specialist Certification in Orthopedics (OCS), Geriatrics (GCS), Neurology (NCS), and Pediatrics (PCS).
You will learn with a diverse group of clinicians who desire to elaborate in a learning process that advances clinical skills and decision-making. You will apply the most current and relevant evidence to individual patient management.
With the addition of the Advanced Practicum Course for clinical mentoring, you are eligible to be a graduate of an APTA Credentialed Residency program once you complete the credentialing process.
Required advanced clinical practice hours and mentoring happen wherever you are working as a physical therapist, providing the career flexibility to achieve optimal work/life balance while advancing your practice. Fitting in a clinical certificate program and residency to advance your practice can be challenging. For this reason, all courses in the program are fully online, and most are offered in a semester (14-week) or accelerated (10-week) format.
Content is presented online from an evidence-based practice perspective using the APTA”s Description of Specialty Practice (DSP) in each specialty area. The majority of the learning materials are delivered electronically using an online course management system (Blackboard) and through synchronous sessions using various technologies.
