Summer Institute

The July Summer Institute brings students and world-class faculty together in Moravian University’s industry-leading Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center for a week-long conference-style learning opportunity. Students expand upon content learned throughout the previous academic year with guidance from some of the profession’s foremost experts. These hands-on sessions will allow students to develop and perfect clinical skills in areas including: manual therapy of the upper extremity and spine; evaluation and management of the upper extremity, spine and sacroiliac joint; advanced concussion evaluation; performing arts medicine, mental health first aid, and more. 

Students must complete 2 Summer Institutes.  One Summer Institute must be completed in an odd year, the other in an even year.  Students who begin the Program in May are not eligible for the Summer Institute that year.
