Patient outcomes are determined by the manual handling skills that you implement.

  • Become a certified, highly skilled, autonomous practitioner with advanced clinical competency in manual physical therapy.
  • Make evidence-based practice an immediate reality in your clinical practice.
  • Enhance your critical thinking and psychomotor skills to improve decision-making and outcomes of care.
  • Improve your knowledge of current evidence and begin your preparation for Orthopaedic Board Certification.

    The Post-professional DPT degree is not intended as an advanced academic degree in preparation for teaching as ranked faculty in a physical therapy educational program. The EIM Post-professional DPT is designed to be a clinically oriented degree. Typically, academic institutions seek ranked faculty members who have “terminal doctoral degrees”, such as a PhD, DSc, etc. Individuals desiring an advanced academic degree that prepares them for teaching should pursue the appropriate degree (ie, PhD, DSc, etc.) based on feedback from their target institution. While some institutions with a clinical faculty appointment track recognize the Post-professional DPT for academic purposes, most require that it come from a regionally accredited institution.
