NeuroRTI’s Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency is a 13-15 month program of post-professional clinical and didactic education for physical therapists designed to advance the physical therapist resident’s preparation as a provider of patient care services in neurologic physical therapy.

The Experience

An intensive combination of didactic, collaborative and clinical education experiences using a combination of distance learning, on-line courses, virtual rounds and weekend intensive hands-on courses and clinical practice hours (including one-on-one mentor hours).

The Outcome

The NeuroRecovery Training Institute’s Neurologic Residency Program is designed so that graduates will:
  • Grow as practitioners skilled in neurologic physical therapy.
  • 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.
  • Gain a strong base of knowledge of evidence-based practice and preventative and rehabilitative neurologic therapy techniques.
