About AAP Education
AAP Education is an independent company founded by Clinical Director Dr Doug Cary, to provide the highest quality postgraduate education for aspiring health professionals. Initially, this involved his Anatomical Acupuncture Program’s (hence the name, AAP Education) series of 4 courses. Through collaboration with other local and international presenters and researchers, AAP Education now provides a diverse range of educational training throughout Australia. Presenters utilise AAP Education’s BTSPro service for full administration and marketing services. While AAP Education provides clinical mentoring, fortnightly clinical newsletters, a bunch of Free Stuff, the Physio+10 Podcast and Premium Partner discounts, our core service is the provision of high quality, online and F2F clinical education.

Who we work with
Our attendees are clinicians that have obtained a degree course in the medical health fields (physiotherapy, chiropractic, occupational therapy, podiatry, medicine, nursing, osteopathy) and are seeking advanced clinical skills. Attendees are enthusiastic and passionate clinicians, yearning to succeed in the daily challenge of helping clients, but feel that their ‘tool kit’ is partially empty.

Attendees want to develop a broader range of management options to improve their client’s outcomes, and are willing to work hard on their clinical skills, but have found accessing quality educational programs difficult and may previously have required out of state travel. Courses are chosen based on clinical quality and AAP Education is proudly independent of any professional body trying to influence clinician’s personal decision about what education they need to undertake.

What you can expect from us
When you attend one of our programs, you will learn clinically applicable skills taught by clinicians that use them day-to-day. Presenters are often also researchers, leaders in their field and with specialist qualifications. The information presented will be up to date and often challenging to your current method of practice. While challenging, the courses are presented in a supportive teaching style, to encourage questions and understanding.

You will learn more than just the topic being presented, due to the experience of your presenters. For example, the single most common, post dry needling course comment from participants, is how they loved developing more confident and accurate, surface anatomy palpation skills. Under the presenter’s guidance, they felt their hands came alive with sensitivity and understanding.

In all of our courses, you will learn to integrate clinical reasoning into both your assessment and treatment process and learn a greater range of appropriate techniques. Our presenters are both leaders in their field of presentation and clinicians.
