OPTIM just got word from the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency/ Fellowship Education that it is now an APTA/ AAOMPT- accredited manual therapy fellowship program. OPTIM was granted this prestigious accreditation for the next 5 years. OPTIM can now bestow the credentials of Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists (FAAOMPT) on our program graduates.
A few words from OPTIM owner Dana Tew PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT: "Big thanks to all of those that believed in us, and even those that didn't. Thanks to the folks who had confidence in us to start the program, trusting us to make this happen, and all of the mentoring and feedback along the way. The amount of effort and time that it takes to reach this milestone is proof of how strongly we believe in post-professional education and moving our profession forward."
There are now 25 accredited programs in the U.S., but still less than 1% of PT's have earned the privilege of using the fellow designation. OPTIM is now honored to help raise the bar on physical therapist education. Congratulations OPTIM!
