The mission of Mary Free Bed’s Pediatric Physical Therapy Residency is to restore hope and freedom to pediatric patients and families by developing therapists into expert practitioners. Through our collaborative process focused on clinical reasoning and mentoring, graduates will develop the skills necessary to provide high-value, expert rehabilitation care utilizing a family and patient-centered approach. They will develop advanced knowledge, skills and clinical expertise in pediatric physical therapy in order to become a clinician of choice with a pediatric specialization. Graduates will contribute to and effectively implement evidence-based clinical practice and will share their knowledge and expertise with students, fellow clinicians and the patients/families they serve, while exhibiting high ethical standards and professionalism.
This is a developing program in the process of seeking accreditation through the American Physical Therapy Association as a post-doctoral residency program for physical therapists in pediatric clinical practice.
