MossRehab developed the first neurologic physical therapy residency program in the country, credentialed by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in 2003. Since then, the program has produced 14 graduates, with 100 percent passing the NCS examination and receiving specialist certification.
Our residency program provides an intensive, one-year experience combining clinical and didactic learning opportunities. The foundation of the program is over 200 hours of one-on-one clinical mentoring with expert clinicians at MossRehab. This occurs concurrently with clinical practice as a treating therapist: residents move through several clinical rotations within the programs offered at Moss. The resident will also receive 150 hours of instruction based on the APTA’s Neurologic Description of Specialty Practice curriculum. Additional components include structured learning opportunities in areas related to clinical practice, teaching and research and scientific inquiry.
The MossRehab Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency Program aims to give practicing physical therapists an advanced level of clinical training to enable them to take a leadership role in the treatment of individuals with neurologic impairments.
This program will create an accomplished patient-care provider who serves as a resource for physical therapists and those in the community, and a contributor to evidence-based practice. Residents will be well prepared to sit for the Neurologic Physical Therapy Specialist Certification Examination.
Why choose the Moss Neurologic Residency Program?
As the oldest neurologic physical therapy residency program in the country, Moss’ residency program draws upon a wealth of experience.
Four of our previous residency graduates continue to work at Moss and are involved with the program. Moss has over ten physical therapists with neurologic specialty certification (NCS) working in its main facility, many of whom are mentors or lecture within the residency program. In addition to the formal mentoring that is a central aspect of the residency program, Moss provides a dynamic clinical environment fostering collaboration among physical therapists and those from other disciplines on the clinical team.
What is a physical therapy clinical residency?
A clinical residency program is defined by APTA as a post-professional clinical and didactic program for physical therapists designed to advance the resident’s preparation as a provider in a defined practice area. It combines opportunities for ongoing clinical supervision and mentoring with a theoretical basis for advanced practice and scientific inquiry. A clinical residency program is not synonymous with a “clinical internship” or “clinical fellowship”. For further information, see the APTA website at http://www.apta.org/ResidencyFellowship/.
