On behalf of the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education, I am pleased to inform you that Cincinnati VA Medical Center and University of Cincinnati Postprofessional Residency in Geriatric Physical Therapy Program in Cincinnati, OH has successfully achieved credentialing as a geriatric physical therapy residency program. This program’s initial credential is effective as of November 30, 2013. Their ongoing credential is effective through November 30, 2018.

A credentialed residency or fellowship program promotes standards of quality and consistency in the teaching and practice of physical therapy. Through their voluntarily participation and adherence to the requirements of the credentialing process, these programs confirm to potential residents or fellows their commitment to providing quality learning experiences by meeting established criteria. Additionally, completion of the credentialing process is an affirmation to the public at large of the Program’s commitment to the protection of the consumer of physical therapy.

We will be recognizing Cincinnati VA Medical Center and University of Cincinnati Postprofessional Residency in Geriatric Physical Therapy Program during the Residency/Fellowship Career Development Reception at the 2014 Combined Sections Meeting. I hope you and members of your chapter will be able to join us in congratulating this program for their achievement of excellence in physical therapy education.
