In 2011, Dr. Paul Reuteman and Dr. Matt Haberl set out to increase access to quality education services for Physical Therapists and other health providers. Together the two have a combined 40+ years of clinical and educational experience in Physical Therapy. Dr. Reuteman and Dr. Haberl recognized a continual challenge for Physical Therapists to maintain minimal education requirements to maintain licensure as well as the significant shortage of Physical Therapy residency programs across the nation. Since 2011, SPTE has developed partnerships across Wisconsin and into Iowa creating greater access to quality orthopaedic residency training and continuing education.

"SPTE truly helped to build my confidence as a therapist. In particular, the 1-on-1 mentorship during patient care and our weekend courses were instrumental in preparing me for the exam and helping me to grow as a clinician. Thank you so much to Paul and Matt for all your help, and thank you especially to my clinical mentor Katie Crowley for your guidance throughout the year!"
