Continuing Education

Our Continuing Education Program is designed to provide an opportunity for licensed physical therapists to pursue continuing education courses and/or graduate academic credit without leaving full-time employment. Currently, the program has an orthopedic emphasis.

Andrews has partnered with the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) to offer all the coursework needed for the clinician to work towards becoming a certified manual therapist. 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.

As of January 1, 2016 NAIOMT is instituing changes to their Core Curriculum.  Please click HERE for an overview of the NAIOMT Core Curriculum.  We are in the process of integrating our system here at Andrews University.

The average NAIOMT course length is 3 to 4 days, while some courses on campus run for 6 days  (Sunday through Friday).

Andrews University has been approved by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the North American Institute of Orthopedic and Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) to offer course work to help clinicians meet the requirements necessary for certification as:

  • Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (Exam offered through the APTA)

  • Certified Manual Therapist (Exam offered by NAIOMT)

All continuing education courses may also be taken for academic credit. Andrews University offers a transitional DPT as well as a DScPT in orthopedic manual therapy. Click here for more information.
