Sports Physical Therapy Residency Program

The Riverside Regional Medical Center (RRMC) Sports Physical Therapy Residency Program is an ABPTRFE-accredited Sports Physical Therapy Residency Program. The program offers a well-rounded clinical and didactic experience both within the clinic and community-based experiences on the field. The Resident will work with a large multi-disciplinary Sports Medicine team internally that includes physicians, physician assistants, athletic trainers, and sports performance specialists, as well as athletic trainers at our partner high schools and middle schools. The Resident will also receive a rich didactic education from our multi-disciplinary team to improve their knowledge of patient conditions and increase quality of care. Lastly, the Resident will also gain clinical research experience in Sports Performance & Research Lab with increased access to resources for their success. After completing the Program, Residents qualify to the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties sports certification examination and earn the coveted Sports Certified Specialist (SCS) designation.

Peninsula Wellness Center

While the Residency Program is built on objectives established by the ABPTRFE, our Program strives to create an individualized learning experience within our growing Sports Medicine team. Our mission is clear: to care for others as we would care for those we love. We truly extend that idea to our Resident, as well as to each member of our valued team.
