The degree of competency that you attain during this intensive program is not parallel to anything else you have experienced. You develop total certainty on how to perform and interpret even the most challenging testing cases and you become a true expert in the area.
The completion of the residency program qualifies you to sit for the APTA board exam much faster and with the completion of only 295 studies vs 500 required without the residency.
This process helps students prepare for the ECS board certification exam and eventually become ABPTS Board Certified in Clinical Electrophysiology.
The title F-EMG (Fellow in Electromyography)
The F-EMG title is exclusive to those who are fellowship graduates. The title evinces proficiency in Electromyography achieved through a vigorous training, studying and testing that advances the physical therapist to an expert in EMG/NCS Testing
The Important Role of AIUM
The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) released a groundbreaking statement declaring physical therapists as qualified providers to perform and/or interpret musculoskeletal ultrasound examinations. This decision by the AIUM further affirms the physical therapists’ evolving capacity to perform this diagnostic examination (along with additional types of examinations) and be recognized by insurance companies as qualified providers.
The FMSK (Fellowship in Musculoskeletal UltraSonography) that HODS has created fully aligns with the purposes of AIUM and furthers the competent involvement of Physical Therapists in this area of study
