STARTS 1st OCTOBER 2022
Creating confident clinicians who take a modern,
evidence based approach to pain & injury
Get better at reading & integrating research into practice
Evidence based treatment of common injuries & persistent pain including real world exercise prescription
Learn about psychologically informed practice & the BPS model & integrating it into how YOU work
Being a modern therapist can be extremely confusing & often frustrating! There are so many buzz words and conflicting opinions that are thrown around.
So much research to read and actually understanding it is another problem altogether. Ever read online discussion and thing “what the hell are they going on about?” or “these guys are on another level”
Learn to cut through the bullshit & apply better critical thinking with regards to research, opinions and treatment.
Create an improved version of YOU rather than trying to become someone you're not. Remember YOU are your biggest asset
Most importantly you can do the majority of learning at your own time & pace and in format that is fun, engaging and manageable.
The Cor-kinetic online mentorship program will NOT give you all the answers, no course can. But it aims to demystify and simplify some of the things you were never taught at university and are vital to being a modern therapist.
It sits nicely between a weekend course and more formal university education with a format that means you get to study in your own time with minimal course work but also you have the option of taking up the live & interactive sessions too!
The aim in the first part of the program is to develop the skills for improving your thinking & interacting skills. The second half is applying this to treatment! Learn the latest science and data behind ankle, knee, hip, back and shoulder rehab

"I have been on numerous weekend courses but I can honestly say the Online Mentorship Program is without doubt the best money I have spent on any course, in terms of how much I have learnt and how much it has influenced my practice. As a full-time physiotherapist, I find it a struggle keeping on top of the latest research, so having Ben point me in the right direction and guide me through the most relevant research has been invaluable. The presentations, given in Ben's inimitable style, are concise, very informative and easy to follow. The exercise ideas have also been fantastic and given me a vast array of tools to work with throughout the different stages of a patient's rehab. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone who considers themselves a modern, forward-thinking, evidence-based practitioner"

"The CorKinetic mentorship has been a game changer for me as it has given me much more confidence to look at the research, to understand it allowing me to make my own conclusions based off it. Alongside that it has helped develop a healthy scepticism of the evidence base, understanding its limitations and its place in evidence-based medicine which has been really helpful.
The amount of content on topics that aren’t normally taught in our training is awesome, Ben’s easy going teaching style makes it much easier to understand but this is then backed up with tonnes of literature to take an even deeper dive if you feel you want more, it’s all readily available.
A part of the mentorship I have really enjoyed is the online meet ups where we discussed the content and any dilemmas we have from practice. Ben does a really great job in creating discussion around these topics and also providing his experience and opinion which is really valuable.
It has honestly impacted my practice so much through building on my current knowledge, learning a tonne of new information, challenging my clinical reasoning, challenging my biases and confirming some of them. I can’t recommend this mentorship enough"

"The Cor-kinetic Mentorship is by far the course with the most up to date content, in regards to rehabilitation and exercise within a BPS paradigm, I've ever had the pleasure to participate in. The information covered would be nothing short of overwhelming, if it wasn't so neatly structured and clearly presented. Ben Cormack tackles the vast and daunting task of digesting the most up-to-date, relevant research and lays it out very clearly. All while noting the possible pitfalls and caveats inherent to most research. I would love to have access to this information for nothing short of a year, to keep soaking in it and fortunately, Ben gives plenty of articles and reading that is covered in the presentations he gives.
Not only am I learning about the content that is covered, but also on how to present it so that it remains clear, well structured and a reference of value that will keep me coming back for more."
