TMTalks: ABPTRFE Standards: Pieter Kroon, Manual Therapy Institute

Pieter Kroon is the co-owner and Program Director of the Manual Therapy Institute, a credentialed fellowship program in manual physical therapy since 1998. He expresses his concerns over the new ABPTRFE quality standards, and in particular, the new admission criteria.

He’s worried about how the new standards put a lot of risk on the sustainability of current fellowship programs, including his. It could also limit accessibility of advanced clinical education for certain clinicians.

He shares his thoughts on the following:

  1. How do you feel about the old standards?
  2. How are you currently communication your needs as a program director?
  3. What are the concerns with the new quality standards?
  4. Do you think the new quality standards can be successfully implemented?
