Frequently Asked Questions
Who should attend your Continuing Education classes?
Our target audience is rehabilitation healthcare providers and students currently enrolled in a rehabilitation healthcare program.
What should I expect to learn?
In accordance with the Georgia Board of Physical Therapy’s Board Rule 490-4-.02, we expect that our continuing education offerings will increase the attendee’s skill, knowledge and competency in areas related to healthcare and rehabilitation services from present levels to those identified in the course’s learning objectives.
Who can receive continuing education units (CEUs) from attending one of your courses?
Emory University’s Division of Physical Therapy is an approved Institution for the provision of Class I continuing education activities by the Georgia State Board of Physical Therapy (Georgia Board of Physical Therapy Board Policy #7). Continuing education contact hours or continuing education units (CEU) may be used to fulfill Georgia requirements for physical therapy or physical therapy assistant licensure renewal.
Unless specifically noted in a particular course, our educational opportunities are not pre-approved by other State Boards, such as the Georgia Board of Occupational Therapy or the Georgia Board of Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology. We will provide CEU certificates of attendance for all healthcare professionals who attend our events; however the individual therapist must conduct her own research to determine if the course meets the professional education requirements outlined by her State licensure board.
Where can I go to learn about my professional education requirements?
Licensed therapists may find specifics regarding their professional education requirements from their State’s licensure board. Listed below are links to the State of Georgia’s Licensing Boards:
Physical Therapists and Physical Therapy Assistants
Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants
Speech Therapists and Audiologists
