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 manual therapist (CMPT & COMT) through our partnership with North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT).

 

The NAIOMT system is nationally recognized for its emphasis on differential diagnosis and clinical reasoning, along with its excellence in teaching manual therapy skills, including precise thrust manipulation techniques. NAIOMT courses require on-campus time, the average NAIOMT course length is 2 to 4 days, while some courses on campus run for 6 days  (Sunday through Friday).
