Continuing Education Approvals
The Science of Running Medicine course is designed by and for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. It is also an excellent course for athletic trainers and other health professionals, such as physicians, chiropractors and strength and conditioning coaches, who work with the running population.
Science of Running Medicine (BOC AP#: P8848) is approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to provide continuing education to Athletic Trainers. This program is eligible for a maximum of 14.25 Category A hours/CEUs.
Level of Difficulty: Advanced per the NATA’s Professional Development Committee
Approved for 14.25 hours in MO
Most states accept the BOC approval for proof of course appropriateness for physical therapy and physical therapy assistant CEUs. However, a few states, notably Texas, California, Louisiana, Florida, and Pennsylvania, may require prior approval by the attendee before applying these CEUs for state licensure. We encourage you to check with your state on its policies.
Irene S. Davis, PhD, PT, FAPTA is a Professor in the School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science in the Morsani College of Medicine at the University of South Florida. Prior to this, she was the founding Director of the Spaulding National Running Center, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Harvard Medical School. Dr. Davis received her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from the University of Massachusetts, and in Physical Therapy from the University of Florida. She earned her Masters degree in Biomechanics from the University of Virginia, and her PhD in Biomechanics from Pennsylvania State University. She is a Professor Emeritus in Physical Therapy at the University of Delaware where she served on the faculty for over 20 years. Her research is focused on the relationship between lower extremity structure, mechanics and injury. Her research also extends to the development of interventions to alter faulty mechanics through gait retraining. She has been studying the use of wearable sensors in both the evaluation and treatment of injured runners. Her interests also include the effect of minimal footwear on mechanics and injury. Dr. Davis has received funding from the Department of Defense, and National Institutes of Health to support her research. She has given over 350 lectures both nationally and internationally and authored 160 publications on the topic of lower extremity mechanics during walking and running gait. She has been named one of the 50 Most Influential People in Running. She is a Fellow and Past President of the American Society of Biomechanics, and the 2019 ASB Borelli award winner. She is also a Fellow, past Vice President and current President-Elect of the American College of Sports Medicine. Finally, she is a Catherine Worthingham Fellow of the American Physical Therapy Association.
Bryan C. Heiderscheit, PT, PhD, FAPTA is a Professor in the Departments of Orthopedics & Rehabilitation and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin(UW)-Madison. He is the Director of the Runners’ Clinic through the UW Sports Medicine Center; Director of Badger Athletic Performance Research for UW Athletics; and Co-director of the UW Neuromuscular Biomechanics Laboratory. Dr. Heiderscheit’s research is aimed at understanding and enhancing the clinical management of orthopedic conditions, with particular focus on running-related injuries. Support for his research includes the National Institutes of Health, NFL Medical Charities, NBA and GE. He is an Editor for the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy and serves as chair of the Research Committee of the American Academy of Sports Physical Therapy.
Christopher M. Powers, PT, PhD, FAPTA is Professor in the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy and Co-Director of the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Laboratory at the University of Southern California. Dr. Powers’ research and teaching interests relate to the biomechanical aspects of human movement. More specifically, his research focuses on how altered kinematics, kinetics, and muscular actions contribute to lower extremity injury. He is particularly interested in the pathomechanics underlying knee and patellofemoral joint dysfunction. Dr. Powers is an active researcher, and has published over 150 peer-reviewed articles. He frequently lectures both nationally and internationally on topics related to lower limb biomechanics and the pathomechanics of orthopaedic disorders.
