Spine Fellowship Program
Cayuga Medical Center's Physical Therapy Spine Fellowship Program is accredited by the Amercian Physical Therapy Association as a post-professional Spine Fellowship Program for physical therapists seeking advanced training and expertise. Though achievement of candidate status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be accredited.
The region's leader in physical therapy and sports medicine has developed a unique Spine Fellowship for licensed physical therapists who demonstrate clinical expertise in orthopaedic physical therapy. Fellows frequently are post-residency prepared or board-certified specialists. This program is offered in collaboration with Ithaca College, one of the nation's top schools for physical therapy.
The Spine Fellowship Program is located at the Cayuga Wellness Center in Ithaca, NY, a state-of-the-art facility on the waterâ€™s edge at the southern end of Cayuga Lake. This is the heart of the Finger Lakes and home to Ithaca College and Cornell University.
Our teaching faculty includes physical therapists with advanced training and manual therapy certification. Several fellowship faculty teach in the physical therapy program at Ithaca College.
Board certified physician specialists in orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, hand injuries, neurosurgery, radiology, and pain management provide clinical instruction in their areas of specialty
We offer a planned program of post-professional clinical and didactic education, designed to significantly advance patient care services in the area of manual therapy. The program provides ongoing mentoring and clinical supervision by experienced, highly qualified clinicians. Fellows-in-Training also have the opportunity to teach and conduct research in the Ithaca College Entry-Level DPT Program.
