Credentialling Examination

26.05.2020

Pretoria

With the increase in requests for Credentialled McKenzie clinicians, taking and passing the exam is strongly recommended. The exam consists of multi-level testing designed to assess the clinical knowledge and skills in MDT of the clinician.

Successful completion of the Credentialing Examination indicates that a clinician has met the requirements established by The McKenzie Institute International (MII), to recognize basic competency in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT).

The examination consists of written and practical components, designed to assess the clinical knowledge and skills developed by the clinician throughout the post-graduate MDT courses. Those who pass the exam may add the post nominal "Cred. MDT" to their professional title. Credentialed clinicians who are members of the McKenzie Institute New Zealand are also added to the online Clinician Locator; which is used by patients and referrers seeking certified MDT providers.
