Accredited Clinician

The Robin McKenzie Institute (Canada)

Being Credentialed MDT means that you have successfully completed the first stage in your journey toward becoming an expert in the field of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT). Now that you are Credentialed, you can consider attaining the Diploma in MDT. Attainment of Dip. MDT status, will place you amongst the very best musculoskeletal clinicians in the world.

If you are not quite ready to continue your journey to the Diploma level just yet, you can still continue to develop your skills and strive toward clinical excellence in MDT, as well as gain some added professional recognition for your added training and knowledge by qualifying to become a MICanada Accredited Clinician.

The designation of MIC Accredited is bestowed by MICanada. It is a branch designation, conceived to bring added recognition and benefits to both Diploma and Credentialed MDT clinicians, that continue to enhance their knowledge of MDT and are dedicated to improving the quality of patient care in Canada.

Diploma MDT clinicians, that are CCES compliant, may apply to take advantage of the benefits of the MICanada Accredited designation, without undergoing the additional testing criteria. Please read the Accredited Clinician Criteria to learn more about the benefits and process.

Accredited MDT Seal Seal

Credentialed clinicians that have attained the MICanada Accredited designation (Cert. MDT/MIC Accredited) have completed all levels of the McKenzie Institute International's post-graduate training program and have successfully passed the Credentialing Exam, proving core competency in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy. In order to achieve the MICanada Accredited status, credentialed clinicians are required to successfully complete additional testing and meet specific clinical practice criteria. In addition, in order to maintain their Accredited status, the Accredited clinicians are required to continually upgrade their clinical skills with further MDT-related training and regularly pass a competency testing process. Clinicians that have attained the Accredited designation are dedicated to continually improving their MDT skills in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients.

The clinician striving for Accredited status will not only benefit from the added training required to maintain the Accredited status, but they will also benefit from additional recognition given by the branch for their willingness to be tested on their MDT capabilities.
