"In fact, I believe that the hands are among the most important parts of a human being, third only to the brain that guides us and the heart that drives us."

~ Terri Wolfe, 1997 Presidential Address



Professional education programming is a core component of ASHT’s mission. ASHT strives to provide members with the very best learning experiences to support the on-going delivery of excellence in hand therapy.  We encourage lifelong learning through a variety of learning formats to capitalize on members’ learning styles and interests.

Hand Therapy Review Course

ASHT's popular Hand Therapy Review Course provides a comprehensive review of the evaluation and intervention processes pursued for typical diagnoses in upper extremity rehabilitation. A particular focus is placed on clinical reasoning, case discussion and evidence-based practice.

Presenters provide opportunities for active learning and application of hand therapy principles to facilitate retention of presented information. Offered twice yearly, the course also offers a structured study approach to upper extremity rehabilitation that may serve as a means to prepare for the CHT Exam.
