Promoting and enhancing fellowship training with the field of sports physical therapy

Mission Statement

Is a residency, fellowship, or sports specialization credential in your future? Or are you considering the start of a post-graduate program in your practice? If you answered yes, then you will want to join the Specialization SIG, formerly known as the Residency and Fellowship SIG and Emergency Medical Responder SIG. The Specialization SIG will act as a facilitator for its members to optimize communication and share best practices to enhance post-professional education and graduate outcomes.

The Specialization SIG will focus on:
• Sharing post-professional best practices.   
• Discussing opportunities to enhance post-graduate programs.
• Providing feedback to ABPTRFE to enhance sports residency curricula.
• Promoting benefits of resident and fellowship programs to those considering post-graduate training.
• Serving as a bridge between academics and clinicians to stimulate research outcomes.
• Providing educational programs for members of the Academy.
