On march 22, 2017 U.S. Citizenship and immigration services (USCIS) re-authorized FCCPT to issue the health care workers (type I) certificate for immigration. The approval is retroactive to march 22, 2015 and lasts until march 2020.

In the re-authorization, USCIS clarified its position regarding requirements for FCCPT to issue the health care worker’s certificate.


USCIS stated that it does not mandate a minimum degree title or number of credit hours required for the type I certificate.Anoxia cerebral USCIS referred to federal regulations at 8 CFR section 212.15 (f)(1)(i), requiring that foreign-educated physical therapists (pts) demonstrates a level of education comparable to the U.S. Educated PT.

Based on the USCIS guidance, the FCCPT board of directors approved the following eligibility requirements for the type I certificate. Effective april 1, 2017, FCCPT will consider the education of foreign-educated pts comparable or substantially equivalent to the U.S. Educated PT if the education demonstrates the following:

• 1. Post-bachelor’s degree: the first professional degree in physical therapy must be a bachelor’s degree or higher. If the first professional degree is a bachelor’s degree, the candidate must also possess a master’s degree or higher in any subject.Anoxia cerebral transitional DPT (tdpt) post-professional degrees offered by regionally-accredited universities that also have a CAPTE-accredited professional DPT program are accepted as post-bachelor’s degrees. • 2. Meets CWT6 requirements: the education meets the content requirements of the coursework tool 6 (CWT6); and

• 3. Minimum credits – 210: the education (general + professional education) possesses a minimum of the equivalent of 210 U.S. Semester credits. The professional education component of the education must contain a minimum of 90 credits. (these credit requirements do not apply to application for licensure).

The april 1, 2017 effective date applies to all type I services currently in review or pending (for immigration), and all new applications for the type I reviews received on or after april 1st.Anoxia cerebral

• cultural competency

This course is about the study of the human movement from the viewpoint of the physical sciences. It involves the appreciation of the human body as a machine for the performance of work and has its foundation in three major areas of study, namely, mechanics, anatomy and neuromuscular physiology.Anoxia cerebral these concepts are integrated and applied to the total body function by examining the complex tasks of posture and gait.

The clinical aspect of kinesiology is given emphasis to meet the need of workers in the field of rehabilitation of the physically handicapped. Although basic kinesiology is concerned with normal motions and individuals with intact neuromuscular systems, this course includes the understanding of pathomechanics and principles of therapy employed by physical therapists in the rehabilitation of locomotor disorders.

This course also includes the application of mechanical principle to postural adjustments, the gait, to the use of prosthetic and orthotic devices, and to modification of home making activities necessitated by the limitation in neuromuscular capacity and skeletal structure.Anoxia cerebral

• neurology

This 3-unit course is an introduction to PT students of the proper way of documentation. It teaches the PT students to apply the principles and guidelines of a problem oriented medical record (POMR) approach in making a physical therapy chart or record. It provides the basic skills needed to write a subjective, objective, assessment, plan (SOAP) notes such as initial evaluation, re-evaluation, interim or progress notes, endorsement notes, and discharge summary. It contains explanation of the relationships between writing SOAP notes and the problem solving process as well as documenting patient care. It also includes the study of medical terminology and use of abbreviation, particularly terminology specific to medical rehabilitation.Anoxia cerebral

Physical examination is an integral part of PT database that reports the clinical findings of the therapist, based on a thorough examination of the patient. It provides the skill to gather data that confirm or support the subjective complaints of the patient of the patient, signs and objective findings that usually accompany a given clinical condition. It also enhances the competence of the students to make decisions necessary to evaluate, assess, and treat patients, to identify problems and assess the effectiveness of the treatment program and to terminate treatment or discharge the patient from therapy. Documentation also acquaint students with findings in the physical exam that can be used as a basis for legal evidence on litigation cases, to justify or nullify insurance and/or disability claims.Anoxia cerebral
