Continuing Education Initiative

The focus of our continuing lecture series is to bring the leaders in field of physical therapy and related disciplines to the Triad community. We hope that bringing these thought leaders to the area will allow clinicians to interact, question, and have discourse with some of the leading minds in healthcare. All proceeds from our continuing education initiative go toward scholarship funds for future physical therapy students.

The HPU Department of Physical Therapy is recognized as an approval agency and continuing education provider by the Physical Therapy Board of North Carolina. CEU’s from our courses can be used to fulfill state requirements for licensure renewal
