Specialty Certification in Hand Therapy

Specialty certification in hand therapy was established in 1991 to recognize occupational therapists and physical therapists with advanced clinical knowledge, experience and skills in the practice of hand and upper extremity rehabilitation. It assists consumers and the health care community in identifying those therapists who meet the rigorous standards required of Certified Hand Therapists, including five years of practice experience with 4,000 hours or more in direct practice in hand therapy and successful completion of a comprehensive test of advanced clinical skills and theory in upper quarter rehabilitation. There are over 5,900 Certified Hand Therapists worldwide.
