US Navy Sports Physical Therapy Residency Program


Mission:  To develop physical therapy professionals with advanced clinical training in sports physical therapy; with preparation to exemplify the core values of physical therapy, to be leaders, clinical scholars, and skilled practitioners in the provision of patient centered healthcare.

U.S. Navy Medicine’s Mission: We enable readiness, wellness, and healthcare to Sailors, Marines, their families, and all others entrusted to us worldwide be it on land or at sea.

Program Goals

  • Support the mission and vision of Navy Medicine by providing a credentialed program to develop physical therapy clinicians with advanced competencies and clinical expertise in Sports Physical Therapy. 
  •  The program will prepare residents to be autonomous providers of sports physical therapy services through leadership, teaching, mentorship, and consultative activities. 
  • Deliver a curriculum for post-professional experiential learning that prepares residents to pursue the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) certification as a sport’s clinical specialist, upon completion of the program. Our candidates for the residency do not submit an application.  Our residents are chosen by the Navy Physical Therapy specialty leader.
  • The program will remain sustainable.
