This course is being offered as a Virtual Lab Experience – an immersive online environment that brings together everything you love about EIM’s in-person weekend intensives. Learn more about what you can expect from this change.
EIM’s PTA Orthopaedic Skills Weekend Intensive Course is a live interactive course designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skill level in the evidence-based management of individuals with common upper and lower quarter disorders and dysfunction. Participants will gain pragmatic knowledge in the areas of safety, professionalism, clinical decision-making, pain neuroscience education and data collection. In addition, attendees will spend much of the weekend learning and practicing evidence-based manual techniques and exercise interventions in order to improve patient outcomes. For the best learning scenario for attendees, 8 to 10 hours of online learning precede the weekend course. Precourse work is not required for students in the PTA Specialty Certification in Orthopaedics program who already completed required foundational components.
Virtual Labs Experiences combine online, self-paced coursework with weekly live, synchronous sessions and practice video submissions.

I took home more information from PTA Orthopaedic Skills than any other course in 19 years. I was able to apply what I learned the day I was back to work. It gets you out of a rut that we get stuck in.
This course is much more than just learning manual techniques. It provided me with additional evidence based practice for various parts of the body, in addition to reviewing the importance of health monitoring.
