Regis University Fellowship in Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy
    Regis University's Fellowship in Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy is the first of its kind to reside in a nonprofit university. Our hybrid online/on-site program is grounded in evidence-based practice principles and embraces APTA's Vision to optimize movement and improve the human experience. Our Fellowship has produced over 120 nationally recognized fellows in OMPT, all from our highly regarded and accredited University with over 140 years of history, and a nationally recognized School of Physical Therapy with over twenty years of experience, located in beautiful Denver, Colorado.

    The Regis University Fellowship combines predominantly online coursework with weekend intensive lab sessions. Students attend five total weekend lab sessions held on our beautiful campus in Denver. The lab sessions are spread out throughout the program. Students also complete structured mentoring time with a FAAOMPT mentor. Emphasis is placed on advanced clinical decision-making, outcomes assessment, and autonomous patient management.

    The program design allows flexibility for clinicians to pursue the Fellowship in OMPT and maintain a full-time work schedule. There is no need to relocate. We have a proven record of success and our graduates provide an exceptional professional network for both students and alumni of the program. Please refer to our website at for information on our faculty, tuition, course descriptions, schedules, and admission details.

    Clinicians can complete the program in as little as 12 months, or extend to a maximum of 36 months. The typical student completes the program in approximately 18-28 months.
