Loyola's orthopaedic physical therapy residency program is credentialed
Date:11/16/2012

MAYWOOD, Il. - Loyola University Medical Center has been credentialed by the American Physical Therapy Association as a post-professional residency program for physical therapists in orthopaedics.

Loyola is one of two centers in Illinois, and 52 centers nationwide, to receive an accreditation in orthopaedics.

A physical therapist can undergo a clinical residency after obtaining a license to practice. The residency is designed to significantly advance the therapist's preparation as a provider of patient care services in a defined area of clinical practice. It combines opportunities for clinical supervision and mentoring with a theoretical basis for advanced practice and scientific inquiry. The resident acquires advanced expertise in examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, intervention and management of patients in a defined specialty.

Loyola's 46-week clinical residency program in orthopaedics is modelled after physician residencies. Residents acquire advanced skills, education and training in physical therapy for joint and musculoskeletal conditions.
