Cranford, NJ – CMP Exam
8:00am – 5:00pm
Review starts the night before the CMP Exam from 4:00pm-6:00pm
All those taking the CMP exam are encouraged to attend!
The purposes of recognizing Certified Mulligan Practitioner (CMP) clinicians are two fold:
As a referral source for clinicians and the general public seeking treatment from clinicians who achieved a recognized level of competence in the Mulligan Concept ™. Clinicians who qualify as a Certified Mulligan Practitioner (CMP) will be eligible to have their names listed on the Mulligan (www.bmulligan.com) website.
The CMP credentialing process can assist clinicians who are interested in having their knowledge base and skill competence in the Mulligan Concept ™ evaluated by providing a peer review/examination process. It is hoped that such individuals with CMP credentials will have improved treatment outcomes.
The NA-MCTA has recognized the need to identify physical therapists that are competent in both a didactic knowledge base and clinical/practical expertise in the Mulligan Concept ™. In brief, the CMP testing has both a didactic and manual skills examination. Upon successful completion of the examination process these clinicians will be recognized as Certified Mulligan Practitioners (CMP).
Those eligible to apply for the CMP exam include: Physical Therapists, ATCs, Medical Doctors, Osteopaths, and Chiropractors (Note: OT, PTA, and COTA are not eligible).
To be admitted to the CMP examination, applicants must have completed the following course sequences.
- UPPER QUADRANT
- LOWER QUADRANT
- ADVANCED COURSE
NOTE: The Introductory course is not required. Nor are Mark Oliver’s Pelvic Girdle MWM course contents required for the Exam. The successful CMP participant should know the core curriculum of: UQ, LQ and Advanced Course material as well as know Brian Mulligan’s 7th ed. Manual Therapy text contents.
Clinical Experience with Mulligan Concept ™ is highly recommended. It is the expectation of the MCTA that individuals who have taken the recommended course work and have clinical experience with the Mulligan Concept ™ should be successful with the exam process. Clinicians who have not regularly practiced the mobilization with movement approach and used Brian Mulligan’s 6th edition text as a clinical resource and guide for developing further understanding and skill in the Mulligan Concept ™ may find the CMP credentialing exam challenging.
All Certified Mulligan Practitioners have met the conditions and qualifications outlined by the MCTA to be listed as a Certified Mulligan Practitioner. Beyond documenting the above Certification requirements, the MCTA makes no representation as to the overall professional qualifications or competence of those listed and does not necessarily recommend or endorse the services of those listed. To retain their CMP status and listing in our directory, CMPs are expected to maintain the highest ethical professional conduct and promote and support the mission of the International Mulligan Concept ™ Teachers Association.
Individual Participants: All cancellations must be submitted with written notice and received 14 days prior to the course date. Refunds, minus an administrative fee of $50.00, are provided if cancellation is received in this timeframe. No refunds will be issued if notice is received less than 14 days before the course.
