About Your EMG/NCV PT Fellowship in Clinical Electrodiagnosis (F-EDX)

Our EMG/NCV PT Fellowship program for physical therapists blends online and on-site learning together for the convenience of our fellows. Fellows are often able to continue their regular job while also enrolled in our Fellowship program.

The EMG/NCV PT Fellowship program has everything to take a physical therapist from having little to no experience in the field to becoming a subject matter expert.

This Fellowship program is exclusively for Physical Therapists aiming for ECS board certification. Other healthcare professionals, including MDs, DOs, Chiros, DPMs, NPs, and PAs who want to become Fellows in Clinical Electrodiagnosis can opt for a specialized Fellowship program tailored just for them.
