Accredited by the American Physical Therapy Association.

The Daemen College Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship Program, in partnership with local health systems and private physical therapist owned private practices, provides post professional orthopaedic manual physical therapy (OMPT) education. The foundations of clinical science and research are integrated with respect to maintenance of the highest ethical standards, while advancing the profession in providing a high quality of care and practice that is evidence-based.

Fellowship/mentoring is the primary means for achieving advanced psychomotor and analytical skills in OMPT, based on a foundation of orthopaedic manual physical therapy education provided in the post professional physical therapy curriculum.

The Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship Program allows students to earn a Masters of Science in OMPT, which is registered with the New York State Education Department. Completion of the program and application will earn the Fellowship credential through the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy (FAAOMPT).
