The Baylor Scott & White-Baylor University Orthopedic (BSWH-BU) Physical Therapy Residency is a 12-month clinical residency that begins each year in February.
The Residency Program allows residents to work across two different orthopaedic practice settings (outpatient and sports) with additional exposure to acute orthopaedics if interested. Residents also teach in the Baylor University DPT program, serving as adjunct faculty for all musculoskeletal labs.
Our mission is to advance orthopaedic physical therapist practice by providing an evidence-based curriculum to orthopedic physical therapists, rooted in respect for human dignity, through sound clinical reasoning, innovation, integration of research, compassion and adaptive expertise to enhance the quality of patient care to the community we serve.
The Baylor Scott & White-Baylor University Orthopaedic (BSWH-BU) Physical Therapy Residency has been granted initial accreditation by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) through January 2028.
Accreditation by ABPTRFE is a reliable indicator of the value and quality of the Residency Program. In receiving initial accreditation, the program demonstrated its commitment to educational standards and ethical business practices indicative of quality, accountability, and continuous improvement that enhances the physical therapy profession.
The orthopedic physical therapy residency is not subject to accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).
