MedBridge works with instructors and discipline consultants to determine if a course is applicable to each discipline (indicated as "Target Audience" in approvals). If you feel a course should be reconsidered for your discipline, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This course is applicable to my discipline, but not approved in my state
Below is a summary of how we apply for courses for each state by discipline. If you feel the course approval does not meet the guidelines below and is not listed for new application or renewal, please contact email@example.com for further assistance.
Physical Therapy (PT)
Courses are marked as approved based on individual state board requirements such as:
- State Board providership
- Individual Course approval
- Recognition of approval by another state's providership, state APTA chapter, or state board
Some state boards do not have CE approval requirements.
ProCert approval is utilized for North Dakota, Puerto Rico, and non-OT applicable courses for the District of Columbia. To view ProCert approved courses, please log into their site and search by provider.
Courses are evaluated for application to approving entities based on:
- User feedback (quality and number of completions)
- Relevancy to discipline (e.g. part of discipline specific certificate programs)
- Regulating body feedback (content may be added or removed as state requirements change)
