There’s no question that residencies and fellowships help develop sports physical therapists’ abilities for advanced competencies in the field. These programs allow professionals to develop their skills under the mentorship of a recognized clinical expert.

Residencies and fellowships require the dedication of many hours of time toward the program...something that can be difficult to arrange in the post-graduate world.

The AASPT, DJO Global and LightForce Therapy Lasers are pleased to present the AASPT Kevin Wilk Traveling Fellowship. Fellows will spend 7-10 days traveling to three educational sites, spending one to two days each with noted leaders in our field. At each site, fellows will be involved in various activities:

• Observation of the host therapist in the clinic
• Surgery observation
• Didactic component
• Social activities to expand the fellows’ professional network

The AASPT Traveling Fellowship is funded by AASPT, allowing six AASPT members to participate each year.

If you have any questions regarding the fellowship or the application process, please contact Rob Manske at

Applications for the fall 2019 class will open soon.
