PT Solutions Physical Therapy is excited to announce its 2019-2020 Neurologic Residency Program based out of Atlanta, Ga! Currently, this program is in the candidacy phase of accreditation by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE).
The mission of PT Solutions Neurologic Residency Program is to mentor, develop and mold therapists to become leaders in the specialty of neurologic physical therapy through a team of advanced professionals who are committed to excellence and education.
This outpatient-based residency program is based on mentorship with education through the most current and relevant evidence-based practice. Our program will produce exemplary leaders within the specialty of neurologic physical therapy guided by knowledge, professionalism, and excellent skill. Throughout the program residents will participate in didactic lectures, clinical mentorship, shadowing and observation opportunities, and clinical research.
The clinical didactic segment of our residency program is roughly 300 hours delivered though classroom instruction, CEUs, journal clubs, and directed learning activities. Following each classroom session, residents participate in a lab session to review hands-on techniques that are immediately applicable in the clinic.
The assessment portion of the program includes both oral and live patient practical examinations, as well as written examinations. To enhance teaching skills and mentoring communication, residents continually present and demonstrate material to their clinical colleagues.
The mentorship portion of the residency program consists of 150 hours of 1 on 1 clinical mentoring, where the mentor provides feedback to enhance resident’s clinical reasoning, clinical problem solving, and practice management.
Research is a large portion of our program. Throughout the program, residents will become effective consumers of the literature, as well as contributors to the scholarly body of knowledge. Each resident will complete a resident case report or case series with the expectation of submitting to national conferences and peer-reviewed journals.
