Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist

Women’s Health Specialist Certification

managed by the American Board of Physical Therapist Specialties (ABPTS)

The American Board of Physical Therapist Specialties (ABPTS) oversees the Women’s Health Clinical Specialist (Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist) board certification. The “Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist” post-nominal initials (meaning, letters behind one’s name) indicates that a Physical Therapist (PT) has proven that he/she has the knowledge, skill, and experience exceeding that of an entry-level physical therapist and unique to the area of women’s health practice. The Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist examination is a comprehensive assessment of all areas described in the Women’s Health Description of Specialty Practice (DSP). The Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist is not administered nor facilitated by the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy. Please direct all Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist-related questions to the ABPTS at spec-cert@apta.org. Please visit the ABPTS Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist website to learn more about eligibility requirements, key deadlines, check the status of your application and additional information about this certification.

Free Study Guide

To help our members prepare for the Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist exam, the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy developed a task force of members to generate a list of free and helpful tips and recommended readings to help you prepare for the exam. The topics and articles listed in our Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist Study Guide are not guaranteed to show up on the Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist Certification Exam nor is the Academy  responsible for any of the exam content. 

Recognition

The Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy recognizes new and recertified Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist recipients at the annual APTA Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) during its General Business Meeting.
