After a year-long post-professional residency program, many full weekends of classes, a very difficult exam, and months of waiting, Dr Lott and Dr Devanna received their results today and are officially Board Certified Orthopedic Specialists. This is quite an accomplishment as only 320 Texas Physical Therapists and 7,655 therapists nationally have attained this recognition (as of 2012).
The APTA administered the first specialty exam in 1985 in an effort to promote a reliable and valid method of certification for therapists who have attained an advanced level of knowledge and skill in specialty areas. This promotes the highest possible level of care for individuals seeking physical therapy services in each specialty area.
We are so very proud of this accomplishment and thank Corsicana, Fairfield and surrounding communities for their support and encouragement.
