CBPT Orthopedic Residency

Curriculum

Our curriculum began its roots in 2004 as a year-long mentoring program for physical therapists. Since then, the curriculum has evolved based on the clinical experience and on-going education of our faculty, as well as emerging scientific evidence. The curriculum provides comprehensive training in both the art and science of orthopedic physical therapy to accelerate clinical expertise. We offer a systematic approach to patient care integrating several well-respected and proven methodologies.  Our mentorship is structured around evidence enhanced practice, movement science, local to global manual therapy and exercise prescription, and seamless treatment of the mechanical and neuromuscular systems.
