The Functional Movement Systems (FMS) Fellowship program is designed to educate and develop world class specialists who influence and elevate the musculoskeletal healthcare profession.
The FMS Fellowship challenges fellows to not only embrace the traditional view of evidenced-based rehabilitation, but also integrate the whole-body movement perspective. During this structured, mentor-based experience, FMS Fellows will interact with FMS founders and other systems experts to become highly skilled, evidence-based, movement-oriented professionals who promote lifelong musculoskeletal health.
The FMS Fellowship is a year long advanced clinical program that incorporates mentoring, evidence-based Clinical Integration courses and learning alongside your peers in a small group, interactive setting.
- Provide an educational environment that promotes learning in a self-directed manner with required mentoring and support.
- Promote the development of practitioners who emphasize an individualized, evidence informed approach that promotes lifelong musculoskeletal health.
- Encourage professional satisfaction.
- Support passionate professionals who value the promotion of sustainable musculoskeletal health.

While the FMS Fellowship faculty and advisory board respect and understand the purpose of accrediting bodies, we have proactively decided not to seek accreditation from a professional organization. Accreditation has many benefits, and along with those benefits, come some restraints that we believe could inhibit this fellowship program from reaching its full potential.
Additionally, our primary focus is to maintain a collaborative healthcare environment where professionals from multiple disciplines can work freely together as a team to advance and optimize musculoskeletal healthcare for their patients and clients. Seeking accreditation from a single professional organization would limit our interprofessional focus.
The leaders of our fellowship have vast experience working within various accredited healthcare education programs, and we have designed the Fellowship to take advantage of areas where accreditation is most helpful, while avoiding areas where accreditation can be restrictive.
Application deadline is March 15th. Candidates will be notified of acceptance by April 15th.
