So, What Are Polyclinics?

In 2010, we surveyed aquatic directors and rehab managers to discover what they fret most about when sending staff off to continuing ed training. Public enemy #1? Pulling their therapists away from family, followed closely by patient coverage and rising travel costs.

If you are having the same training migraines, fret no more because Aquatic Therapy University is here to bear  the travel headaches for you by coming to where the therapists are: your facility.

We are calling these classes polyclinics. "Poly" because of all our varied tracks, unique payment solutions and rich buffet of valuable add-ons. "Clinic" because our experienced, licensed therapists come to teach provable, evidence-based content to your clinicians in your clinic. From elite athletes to the fragile child, from boot camps for tadpoles to lab-intensives for aquatic black belts, ATU has a class for you.


Polyclinics are held when its convenient for you. Morning starts or early ends, we aim to accommodate your operations. While most staff prefer Fri-Sat or Sat-Sun classes, we accommodate weekday requests, too. And a pre-conference DVD option allows you to study the preliminaries at your leisure so the remaining hours can be scheduled to maximize pool time.


A 2-day polyclinic costs $5995, all-inclusive. This means there are no hidden travel, lodging or per diem expenses to blindside you. This is also a flat-fee, meaning it remains the same whether you have 1 or 99 students.

Polyclinics are priced to maximize value for the mid-sized facility and is cost-beneficial if you have five or more therapists. Is this you? Then don't send them out-of-state. Have them stay at home and save. 

Here is a list of our free Add-Ons:

Aquatic Therapy Boot Camp DVD Pre-Study Module

We will send you one DVD of our time-tested Aquatic Therapy Boot Camp, good for 4.0 credit hours. Facilities choose this add-on to allow their staff to prepare in advance without the need for pool downtime. Take this module at your leisure during lunches or take-home sessions. Comes with enough manuals for your entire staff.
