Continuing Education

The Postprofessional department offers many continuing education options to licensed physical therapists. Course options include abbreviated versions of our online academic courses and all the coursework needed for the clinician to work towards becoming a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT & SMT) through our partnership with ASPIRE OMT, an orthopedic manual therapy institute founded by the world-renowned Erl Pettman.

Our manual therapy courses do require some on-campus time.  The average length is 2 to 4 days, while some courses require 6 days  (Sunday through Friday). 

Interested in pursuing a transitional DPT or a DScPT? Taking one of our continuing education courses is a great way to learn about the quality of our programs. For more information about our degrees click here.
