Program Overview

On average, it takes 17 years for research to disseminate into clinical practice. You read that correctly. 17 years. Agile is committed to reducing that timeline for its therapists. This means that as a company we prioritize the education of our staff to ensure they are providing the most evidence-based and up-to-date care. It means that many of our staff are faculty or adjunct-faculty at the university, residency, and fellowship level. Finally, it means that we work hard to create a company culture that values career-long learning. Agile knows that an up-to-date clinician provides better and more efficient care for patients. Here are some examples of how we foster an environment of learning and education:

  • Substantial continuing education budget for our therapists, who are encouraged to attend courses across the country.
  • High attendance and participation by our staff in state and national physical therapy conferences.
  • Hosting of Journal Clubs, where therapists can share, discuss, and critique new research in the physical therapy field.
  • Frequently sponsoring internationally renowned researchers and clinicians to lecture and teach our staff.
  • Company-wide distribution of a bi-monthly newsletter which discusses emerging evidence and best practice.
  • Hosting our own continuing education courses, where our therapists instruct both students and community therapists in a variety of Orthopaedic topics.

Ortho Seminar Series

The program utilizes several methods of instruction. The fellow will attend modules at the University of Southern California for didactic and laboratory instruction. A clinical faculty member provides accompanying lab instructions throughout the course of the fellowship. The fellow will receive further didactic study though independent study courses via an online platform. In addition to the various forms of didactic and laboratory education, the fellow will also receive direct supervision during patient care hours and interactions with a clinical faculty member.
