Manual Therapy Certification Curriculum
IAMT has developed a unique curriculum of manual therapy courses specifically designed to provide clinicians with a solid foundation in both examination and treatment. Our curriculum is centered around clinical reasoning skills and is strongly evidence-based. Our teaching model ensures the therapist focuses not only on the source of the patient’s symptoms but also the causative factors. A variety of eclectic manual therapy and exercise interventions are taught by expert clinicians throughout our curriculum with a strong emphasis on patient outcomes and function achieved through constant assessment. The certification program consists of 8 Manual Therapy courses and upon completion candidates will be eligible to sit for IAMT’s COMT exam. These courses may also be taken independently of the certification curriculum.
