According to a NeuroRTI news release, the Neurological Clinical Practice Certificate is a 7-month postprofessional program, dedicated to developing evidence-based physical therapist practitioners and clinician scientists worldwide seeking to advance clinical practice techniques and decision-making for the management of patients with neurological disorders.
The completion of the certification is intended to position graduates to rapidly integrate that knowledge into their clinical practice and pursue board certification, the release says.
Program director Kim Atkinson, PT, NCS, articulates the organization’s excitement in offering the Certification in Neurological Clinical Practice. “Case examples, both live and video, will promote discussion of clinical decision-making, progression, and tailoring the environment to be successful,” Atkinson explains in the release.
The release notes that course work includes study under leaders in neurological and manual therapy clinical practice. These individuals include Dr Mary Thigpen, Dr Jane Sullivan, Dr Tim Flynn, Dr Michael Furtado, and Dr Jennifer Fernandez, among others. The release adds that cohorts are slated to begin in January and October of 2016.
