Pursuing Women’s Health Clinical Specialist Certification
The American Board of Physical Therapist Specialties (ABPTS) oversees the Women’s Health Clinical Specialist (WCS) board certification. The “WCS” post-nominal initials (meaning, letters behind one´s name) indicates that a physical therapist has proven that he/she has the knowledge, skill, and experience exceeding that of an entry-level physical therapist and unique to the area of women’s health practice. The WCS examination is a comprehensive assessment of all areas described in the Women´s Health Description of Specialty Practice (DSP).
