RESULTS PHYSICAL THERAPY SPORTS RESIDENCY
The mission of the Results Physical Therapy Sports Residency program is to educate, inspire, and motivate physical therapists to become an integral member of the multi-disciplinary sports medicine team acquiring knowledge through advanced didactic, clinical skills, and on-field injury management. Residents of the Results Physical Therapy Sports Residency program will abide by the core values of the APTA, learn how to be successful in a private practice sports setting, learn the art of communication within the sports medicine team, and learn to effectively treat the athlete from an acute injury to return to sport.
TRAINING & CURRICULUM
Residents will have a multitude of experiences including on-field injury management within the college and professional setting, rounds with leading orthopedic surgeons, didactic experiences with Family Medicine and Sports Medicine Residents, Certified Strength & Conditioning prep course (16 weeks), gain experience treating a sports oriented patient population (youth, collegiate & professional level), and clinical mentoring with Board Certified Specialists in Orthopedics and Sports Physical Therapy while gaining the knowledge needed to successfully sit for and pass the Sports Certified Specialist (SCS) Board Certification Examination.
