Residency Programs

Our Residency Programs aim to mentor, develop, and mold therapists into leaders within the specialties of neurologic and orthopedic physical therapy, guided by knowledge, professionalism, and skill.

Each program comprises in-person didactic and lab sessions, one-on-one clinical mentorship, and a clinical research model based on current evidence and relevant clinical practice.

Orthopaedic Residency Program

The Orthopaedic Residency Program is accredited by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE) through 2028. Since its debut in 2012, our Orthopaedic Residency program has expanded to eight regions across the U.S.

Neurologic Residency Program

The accredited Neurologic Residency Program is an outpatient-based program located in Atlanta, Georgia. This 11-month program has one graduate from its inaugural class, with a 100 percent first-time NCS pass rate. This program is currently inactive, but if you’re interested in a Neurologic Residency, follow this link to our partnered program with St. Vincent Evansville and the University of Evansville Neurologic Residency.

This Orthopaedic Residency taught me so much about myself and what I am capable of. I gained skills and perspectives that inspired me to push the boundaries of what kind of clinician and person I wanted to be. I am a better speaker, listener, thinker, critic, and questioner, which I continue to apply to all aspects of my life.
