The MLD Institute was born in physician directed Lymphedema Treatment Services (LTS) Clinic of Ft. Lauderdale in response to those who came seeking employment at the famous clinic. Workshops are taught in “live” format, never on-line to create a well-rounded therapist prepared to perform ALL the duties required of an MLD Certified practitioner. Courses cover cost & time effective Manual Lymph Drainage protocols appropriate for America’s billing system and maintaining a clinical schedule. In addition, clinical documentation used at LTS, patient centered bandaging techniques and compression garment strategies to increase compliance are also covered.
Our Bachelor’s Level program is designed to create a highly effective “therapist/MLD practitioner” capable of performing these duties on a variety of populations. With a practical focus on delivery of outcomes, the practitioner is highly desired by both the health/wellness and medical model and equipped to do the job from concept to completion—a necessary must in today’s MLD market.
The Master’s Level program takes the MLD practitioner to new levels and prepares them for the role of management. Many “certified” therapists would visit LTS Clinic for advice on how to manage a program or create one of their own. This requires another skill set, and now the MLD Institute offers its “secrets to success straight from the LTS Clinic” to you. The manager is responsible for the staff, the success of the program, marketing, vendors and accounts and dealing with the most difficult cases. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Let MLD Institute’s team help you.
