NeuroRecovery Training Institute Launches its Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency Program

The NeuroRecovery Training Institute (NeuroRTI), created to promote a culture of evidence-based practice (EBP) within the neurologic physical therapy profession, is excited to announce their Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency Program. With a unique blended learning model, the program can accept up to 60 residents in 2015, providing curriculum to all from leading educators in neurologic physical therapy.

“We are thrilled to have launched our first cohort and look forward to mentoring many more therapists,” states Kim Atkinson, PT, NCS, NeuroRTI Residency Director. “We believe that post-professional residency training is critical to the future of our profession and the best method for physical therapists to pursue board certification.” Residents currently enrolled in the Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency just completed courses in Advanced Anatomy and Imaging. NeuroRTI has submitted their application for accreditation from the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) for the Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency. Their partner, Evidence In Motion, has received this prestigious seal of approval for the Sports and Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Programs.

NeuroRTI’s Neurologic Residency Program is a combination of online learning, hands-on courses, virtual rounds, and clinical mentoring. The program is unique in its ability to provide physical therapists the opportunity to participate in a first-rate post-professional neurologic residency without moving from their current location or place of employment. The program is designed to allow graduates to:

  • 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
