Thanks to a new reciprocity agreement, over 1,000 additional MedBridge CEU courses are now available to Florida-based physical therapists.
Seattle, WA – MedBridge, the industry-leading digital care solution for healthcare professionals and organizations across the care continuum, announced today that over 1,000 additional accredited continuing education courses are now available on the MedBridge platform to Florida-based physical therapists.
Previously, PTs in Florida had access to fewer accredited courses than other states due to limited reciprocity between the Florida Physical Therapy Association (FPTA) and other state boards. MedBridge has been a part of the discussion with the Florida Board of Physical Therapy (FBPT) to clarify language and guidelines for an agreement supporting reciprocal approval of CE courses in multiple jurisdictions.
With this new reciprocity agreement, the FBPT will now accept continuing education courses approved by MedBridge through the California and Texas state chapters of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). In addition, MedBridge is now an FBPT-approved provider and has opened its full catalog of more than 1,300 accredited courses to Florida physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. Moving forward, MedBridge will launch all new physical therapy CEU courses with active Florida accreditations.
The additional course availability means that Florida PTs and PTAs can now access stronger education opportunities through MedBridge that will allow them to provide the most up-to-date and advanced patient care to Florida patients. The MedBridge Continuing Education Library provides evidence-based, expert-led courses designed in an engaging, accessible format for busy healthcare professionals. Courses cover a broad range of pertinent topics, from clinical treatment and diagnosis strategies to business skills, leadership development, and ethics.
“We’re thrilled to be able to provide the same level of education and training to our Florida PTs that we do nationwide,” said Emily Scarbrough, VP of Education and Production. “Now, therapists in Florida have the opportunity to take full advantage of our platform and learn valuable leading-edge skills and strategies alongside their peers. This successful effort demonstrates our ongoing commitment to helping clinicians advance their careers and provide the highest level of patient care.”
