Join Us

Our mission is to provide advanced clinical education that accelerates the professional development of an orthopaedic physical therapist. We aspire to develop highly skilled patient care providers, consumers of the scientific literature, and life-long learners in a fun and challenging environment.

Program Overview

Agile Physical Therapy is proud to offer the longest running orthopaedic physical therapy residency in the San Francisco Bay Area. Agile has been offering specialty training in orthopaedics since 2010.

Our curriculum is designed to develop highly skilled, critically thinking, evidence-based clinicians. This includes robust classroom and didactic instruction in collaboration with the University of Southern California. Our residents hone their skills with regular labs and continued learning through special topic lectures and journal clubs throughout the year. The hallmark of our program is the mentorship which happens both formally and informally as our residents practice alongside their mentors as well as over 30 residency or fellowship trained colleagues.
