Aquatic Therapy University

Aquatic Therapy UniversityAquatic Therapy University (ATU), the gold standard in post-graduate aquatic therapy training, announces an Aquatic Therapy Boot Camp webinar, “Core Concepts of Water-Based Intervention,” scheduled for February 23, 2012, Noon EST. This is first in a series of evidence-based education opportunities created in concert with the Medical Fitness Association and open to the entire aquatic industry. The 60-minute webinar, taught by industry guru, Andrea Salzman, MS, PT, Program Director of Aquatic Therapy University, will take a functional look at aquatic therapy fundamentals for any discipline.

“Our facilities all want to treat the whole person and aquatic post-rehab is near and dear to achieving that,” said Jim Gallagher, Director of Business Development at the Medical Fitness Association. “But,” he explained, “the CE quality isn’t there. That is why we asked ATU to host our first aquatic webinar. So our global members can learn from the best clinical leaders in the field.”

“Our webinar makes it feasible for a program director to bring 60-minutes of evidence-based aquatic training to their entire team,” said Salzman. “By partnering with us, the Medical Fitness Association has made it possible for facilities across the globe to attend ATU-caliber trainings, without spending a dime on travel.” The one-hour webinar is open to all, free for MFA members ($99 for non-MFA members). ATU courses are open to anyone with internet access. You do not need to be a MFA member.
