Enloe’s Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency Program

Learn from Experienced CaregiversPhysical therapist with patient

Enloe Medical Center will be offering a residency program in orthopaedic physical therapy. This program is currently undergoing the credentialing process and will become the only residency program in this region of northern California. 

Participants receive extensive on-site education and hands-on training as they work under the supervision of Enloe’s most trusted physical therapists. These experienced, caregivers stay up to date on the most current evidence, so they can provide the best-quality care possible — and help the next generation of physical therapists do the same.

Training takes place at the state-of-the-art Enloe Rehabilitation Center, located in Chico, Calif., less than 2 hours north of Sacramento.

A Well-Rounded ProgramEnloe therapists

Our mission: The Enloe Medical Center Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency will improve patient-centered care through quality advanced, evidence based, post-graduate orthopaedic physical therapy training. This training will help physical therapists become experts in their field of orthopaedic physical therapy for the betterment of the local community. 

When you’re part of our program, you’ll work with up to three mentors for 12-18 months, allowing you to gain valuable insight from multiple providers — making you a more well-rounded expert clinician in the end.

But the learning doesn’t stop there. You’ll also be in the company of a large staff of experienced caregivers who want you to succeed. These experts are board-certified specialists in several areas, including:

  • Orthopaedics
  • Neurology
  • Geriatrics
  • Sports
  • And more

Several are Fellows of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists (FAAOMPT).

They’re happy to share their knowledge with you. In fact, many Enloe caregivers have years of experience teaching in other programs, as well as continuing education. Apply for our program today!

Enloe’s Approach

Others have taken note, earning Enloe Medical Center several recognitions, including a designation for Outstanding Patient Experience, Top 15% in the Nation 4 Years in a Row (2016-2019).

Patients have voiced their appreciation as well. Here’s what a few of our therapy patients have said about us:

“This facility has exceeded all our expectation in every way. We feel as the entire staff is an extended family and are going to miss our visits here. Everyone is professional, friendly, caring and highly equipped in their field. Thank you for all you’ve done in the past months.”

This has been such a good experience. Each person on your staff has made us feel welcome and cared for. The care and personal attention to our particular situation made this a much easier recovery process.”
