This interdisciplinary program includes four weekend lab courses aimed at each body region (lumbopelvic, lower extremity, cervical thoracic, and upper extremity) and a therapeutic neuroscience education online course. You will learn psychomotor and clinical reasoning skills for orthopedics and then tie it together with best practices for the integration of pain science.

Courses are taught by EIM’s world class faculty, many of whom are internationally recognized for their contributions to education, research, and practice management. The extensive community that has formed around EIM provides a best practice environment for students to receive the highest caliber of training and to become distinguished leaders in evidence-based orthopaedic and manual physical therapy practice.

  • Flourish in a cutting edge educational environment that integrates state of the art learning tools with advanced professional clinical practice.
  • Gain skills to confidently and professionally interact with other members of the health care team and provide leadership in the care of musculoskeletal conditions.
  • Promote life-long learning for themselves and other physical therapists.
