benefits of the program

A single key goal lies behind the entire curriculum of the Fellowship program:  to turn your thinking upside down, until you can make expert clinical decisions with each and every patient. Graduates are able to reorganize their thoughts into clear patterns that lead to wise diagnoses and flawless treatment planning.  This program provides a heavy dose of technical skill acquisition, with equal amounts of decision making and wisdom building. 

 

At the successful completion of all modules of the program, a certificate will be issued, which can be listed on your curriculum vita as “Fellowship in musculoskeletal physiotherapy”.
