The short answer: the blending of evidence based-practice and the Dynamic Wheel, a continuous process of evaluation that is iterative during individual patient engagement.
The long answer requires reflection and a view to the future for each individual who enters the program. There is a natural bridge to Jesuit philosophies of teaching and learning and a commitment to engagement in the community.
At Regis we seek to integrate high level evidence with the dynamic experience of involvement with like-minded professionals seeking growth and greater purpose. We build on our foundation as a program that has graduated over 145 Fellowship graduates, with over 200 potential mentors from our Graduates and current Fellows-in-Training as a combined group. Our Fellows in Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT) are leaders providing service to their communities in the field of OMPT practice.
Our orthopaedic residency approach is designed to find the very best PT in each participant. Theoretically this is a blending of many schools of thought in orthopaedic practice. More than a patient based test re-test approach we identify what both the therapist and the patient can each provide to develop the best care for the individual. We seek excellence in hands-on orthopaedic care, excellence in treatment delivery and excellence in ongoing learning in the treatment process. We seek the Magi, to strive to do more and be the best we can be for others, we seek Cura Personalis to provide optimal care to the whole person to best serve the patient and society.
Our approach is mirrored in the past and the present in the works of leaders in orthopaedic practice. Where the best in practice is found, the roots of the Regis approach is found. Where the development and growth of orthopaedic practice is found, the ongoing genesis of our approach is rooted.
