MossRehab Neurologic Residency for Physical Therapists - Curriculum

The MossRehab neurologic physical therapy residency program combines clinical mentoring, the opportunity for advanced clinical practice, didactic information, and specialty learning opportunities into a rich, comprehensive learning experience.  We believe strongly that:

  • Advanced clinical-decision making requires solid foundational knowledge and skills
  • Advancement of clinical skills requires guidance and reflection
  • Advanced clinical practice requires the ability to critically appraise and contextualize current research
  • Patient's are the best teachers   

Therefore, the didactic portion, as well as the entire program, is developed around these ideas.  Further, we use as a framework, the APTA’s Neurologic Description of Specialty Practice (DSP). This is the same document on which the examination for specialty certification in neurologic P.T. practice is based. This ensures that the residency graduate will be well prepared to sit for the specialty certification examination and practice autonomously at an advanced level.

In each week, the resident can expect to participate in the following:  

  • 28 hours of direct care with patients with neurologic diagnoses
  • 2 hours of work  with a patient and a mentor (“mentored session”)
  • 3 hours of one-on-one mentoring with a mentor
  • Up to 6 hours of didactic lectures and structured learning experiences 

Note that some lectures will be provided on weekday evenings, while others may occur during Saturday or  the full weekend.  Although the structure of each week will vary depending on the clinical service and other responsibilities, a typical week might look as follows:
