Employee Only: Continuing Education

Fairview Rehab Services (FRS) provides between 20-25 CE courses yearly. FRS strives to offer a variety of courses for our healthcare providers from adult to pediatrics and many specialty areas. These courses are free of charge to all core and casual staff (casual staff must meet the casual staff working requirements). There is no limit on the number of courses staff can attend and course is filled on a first come first, first serve basis.

Our mission is to provide quality, cost effective continuing education for our increasingly complex and specialized therapy teams, while establishing a financially viable department.

The CE department serves Fairview Rehabilitation Services, the Institute of Athletic Medicine, Fairview Hand Center and Fairview Home Medical Equipment which includes PTs, OTs, Speech Pathologist, Hand Therapist, Athletic Trainers and Audiologists.
