NeuroRTI’s Certification in Neurologic Clinical Practice is a 7-month program of post-professional clinical and didactic education designed to advance the physical therapist’s preparation as a provider of patient care services in neurologic physical therapy. For PT’s interested in Residency but unable to find a mentor, certification is another path to preparation for the NCS exam.

The Experience

An intensive combination of didactic, collaborative and clinical education experiences using a blend of distance learning, online courses, and weekend intensive hands-on courses. Use certification credit hours toward a NeuroRTI Residency and/or DPT, should you decide to pursue later. Complete course work when it is convenient for you.

The Outcome

NeuroRecovery Training Institute’s Certification in Neurological Clinical Practice is designed so that graduates will:

  • Become highly skilled, autonomous practitioners who have substantially increased their ability to provide care to a full spectrum of patients with neurologic injuries or conditions.
  • Begin preparation for the NCS exam.
  • Gain a strong base of knowledge of evidence-based practice and preventative and rehabilitative neurologic therapy techniques.

Curricula

The curricula mirrors the Residency/DPT Programs but eliminates redundancy in course work that may have been completed in an entry-level program.
