Herman & Wallace continuing education courses are attended mainly by physical therapists. However, we see ourselves as a resource for all health care practitioners seeking to improve patients' quality of life, and other professionals are welcome in our courses so long as the content covered in any given course that one attends is within that person's scope of practice. It is the responsibility of course registrant to check with their state boards to ensure that the content of a Herman & Wallace course that they attend is within their state-specific scope of practice
The following is a "non-exhaustive" list of practitioners who are welcome to take our courses:
|Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO)||Doctor of Chiropractic (DC)||Nurse Midwives (CNM)|
|Nurse Practitioners (ARNP)||Occupational Therapists (OT)||Occupational Therapists Assistants (OTA)|
|Physical Therapists (PT)||Physical Therapists Assistants (PTA)||Doctor of Medicine (MD)|
|Physicians Assistants (PA)||Registered Nurses (RN)||Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND)|
By "non-exhaustive" we mean that these are simply the most common registrants that we see in our courses. Potential registrants who are not licensed in one of the above professions and wish to attend a given H&W course must contact their state licensing board and ask for written clarification on whether or not the content of the course they wish to attend falls within their scope of practice. Herman & Wallace will require written confirmation from a given professional's state licensing entity in order to allow a professional not listed above to attend a given course. Every state has different rules governing the scope of practice of the hundreds of types of healthcare practitioners. For this reason, Herman and & Wallace requires this written notice.
Herman & Wallace values the work of Licensed Massage Therapists (LMTs) and the place LMTs have in the healthcare industry. However, we have consulted with legal counsel, and at the advice of our legal counsel, we are not accepting registrations from LMTs at this time. If regulation of the LMT profession changes, we will revisit this policy with our legal counsel and amend our attendance policies accordingly.
