NAIOMT has recently made the decision to not seek ABPTRFE re-accreditation of its Orthopedic Clinical Residency Program. Started in 2014, in partnership with Andrews University, the program served many students, some of whom have gone onto complete NAIOMT fellowships and who are now on track to NAIOMT faculty status. It also provided a strong foundation for those looking to complete a terminal DSc degree at Andrews University.
Although it is always sad to end successful programs, NAIOMT will always stay true to its mission and vision of staying dedicated to achieving the highest standards of clinical practice for manual physical therapists. Like all organizations, NAIOMT has limited resources and has decided to focus intently on further developing learner-centred programs which enable NAIOMT to be evidence-based, innovative and sustainable.
NAIOMT believes strongly in the power of 1:1 clinical mentoring and will be developing extensive mentoring options within its existing CMPT and COMT programs, making it even easier to support the union of the clinician, academician and researcher, all in an effort to facilitate the development of quality patient care, physical therapy education and the development of master clinicians.
NAIOMT's ABPRTFE accredited Manual Therapy Fellowship Program remains accredited through 2025, with an upcoming admissions window in fall 2018!! To find out more about that program, click HERE
