Fellowship Program in Orthopedic Manual Therapy

The fellowship experience combines opportunities for ongoing mentoring and formal and informal feedback to the physical therapist fellow in training, including required written and live patient practical examinations, with a foundation in scientific inquiry, evidence-based practice, and course work designed to provide a theoretical basis for advanced practice. Each program is based on a well-defined, systematic process for establishing content validity of the curriculum that describes practice in a defined area. Mentoring is provided by a Fellowship Trained Physical Therapist, as Dr. Fleming PT, DPT, OCS is.

The program includes activities that promote the physical therapist fellow in training continued integration of practice, research, and scholarly inquiry, consistent with the program’s mission and philosophy. An evaluation component helps to ensure that the stated goals are being met by the physical therapist fellow-in-training through the curriculum plan.
