Professional Development for Clinical Staff

Clinical Education at PTSMC
In this ever-changing field, PTSMC values the advancement of knowledge and skills to ensure patients receive the best and most current care available.  Both in-house education programs and financial support for employees to seek external educational opportunities are afforded to PTSMC clinical staff.  PTSMC has supported several staff in achieving advanced degrees and certifications.

Clinical Mentorship
Clinical mentorship is the backbone of all physical therapy residency and fellowship programs. It helps clinicians
with their clinical reasoning process, improved clinical pattern recognition, and allows clinicians to become more efficient and effective faster than clinicians who have not received this training.

All new PTSMC clinicians receive mentorship support by one of our expert Certified Orthopedic Specialists (OCS)
trained physical therapists. Mentorship is 5 hours monthly for up to 12 months or as long as needed, and one hour
biweekly to review clinical cases. One-on-one meetings are scheduled each quarter with the Director of Clinical
Excellence, Mike Gans to review mentorship and clinician development.

Leadership and Management Development Program (LMDP)

PTSMC believes in growing from within; particularly in leadership opportunities.  We commit time and resources to interested and qualified employees to train in and develop leadership skills and business acumen.  Our LMDP is a turn-key program for physical therapists to launch into partnership and ownership. Not only does LMDP provide the opportunity for physical therapists to grow, it also provides a launch pad for staff to grow into leadership positions within PTSMC.
