The NeuroRecovery Training Institute (NeuroRTI), created to assist in the continued education of neurologic physical therapists, is excited to announce the accreditation of their Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency Program by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). NeuroRTI earned the ABPTRFE seal of approval in December 2014 and will be presented with the official certificate at the 2015 Combined Sections Meeting opening ceremonies. Accredited residency programs create and promote standards of quality in both the teaching and practice of physical therapy.
“We are thrilled to receive this respected accreditation from the APTA,” states Kim Atkinson, MPT, NCS, NeuroRTI Neurologic Physical Therapy 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. This prestigious accreditation is a testament to the quality of the Neurologic Residency Program and other programming that NeuroRTI offers to physical therapists seeking post-professional education.”
NeuroRTI’s Neurologic Residency Program is a combination of online learning, hands-on courses, virtual rounds, and clinical mentoring. NeuroRTI’s 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 help physical therapists:
- 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.
