The fellowship is a 12-month program accredited through the American Board of Physical Therapy and Fellowship Education that supports our strong curriculum. In addition to your clinical practice and event coverage, you will attend conferences, learn through Journal Club, study advanced topics and attend grand rounds. The Upper Extremity Fellowship at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is accredited by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE).
The partnership we have with the Cleveland Indians and their AAA affiliate team, the Columbus Clippers, provides fellows with a rare academic experience. From working at pro spring training camp to serving the Clippers throughout their season, our fellows are there every step of the way — and guided by experienced faculty and staff.
