- ‘Many physical therapists obtain advanced specialty certification in cardiovascular and pulmonary therapy, clinical electrophysiology, geriatrics, neurology, orthopedics, pediatrics, and sports therapy.’
- ‘The section on electrophysiology is clear and comprehensive but yearns for the more dynamic presentation that animation could provide.’
- ‘Research modalities such as immunohistochemistry, tissue culture, electrophysiology, and molecular biology are widely used in both disciplines.’
