What is a Board-Certified Clinical Specialist?

Board-certified clinical specialists have built on a broad base of professional education and experience to develop greater knowledge and skills in a particular area of practice. To become certified, physical therapists demonstrate competence in both specialized knowledge and advanced clinical proficiency. Among the minimum requirements to become certified are documented hours of direct patient care in the chosen specialty area and successful completion of a rigorous examination through the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME).
