Fellow in Training (FIT)TITLE: Fellow in Training
After PT school, some clinicians pursue advanced training through fellowships. A fellowship is typically a 1-3 year program that that allows a PT to become more specialized in a certain area of physical therapy.
Fellowships enable physical therapists to become recognized experts in a specialty or subspecialty. A fellowship is not required to practice physical therapy and while many physical therapists do not chose to do a fellowship after PT school, it is becoming more common to do so. Less than 1% of all physical therapists have completed fellowship training.
