The American Burn Association is excited to announce the relaunch and reopening of the Burn Therapist Certified (BT-C) specialty certification with a brand-new portal system.

Providing a focused and meaningful professional development goal based on competency standards, the BT-C program is open to all burn occupational and physical therapists.

“The ABA Burn Therapist Certified (BT-C) program recognizes those who have developed these specialized skills and lays the foundation for professional development,” says Jeffrey Carter, MD, FACS. “The program defines a meaningful set of competency standards and a commitment to the rehabilitation of burn survivors and the biology of recovery.”

This specialty certification establishes a foundation for continuing education, professional development, and career advancement opportunities.

“The BT-Certification provides a jumping off point for clinical discussion when training and mentoring,” says BT-C Recipient, Michelle Dwertman, PT, BT-C. “It facilitates a broader view of treatments for the burn survivor and looks at the whole person.”
