Program Objectives:

1. Prepare participants for successful completion of an APTA Neurologic Residency Program or specialization in Neurologic Physical Therapy. 
2. Refine skills in clinical reasoning, movement analysis, and use of standardized assessment tools for individuals with neurologic related impairments, activity and participation limitations.
3. Synthesize and interpret clinical findings, external evidence and knowledge of neuroanatomy to establish an accurate diagnosis and to design an effective intervention strategy based on prognosis. 
4. Design intervention programs that maximize participation in functional activities to promote recovery that includes the entire body
5. Demonstrate evidence-based practice by integrating patient preference, external evidence, and clinical judgment in patient management. 
6.  Produce highly skilled patient care providers for patients who have neurologic related conditions
7. Develop, define, and justify appropriate therapy parameters based on current motor control, motor learning, and principles of exercise and neuroplasticity literature. 
8. Create mentors for building the next generation of Clinical Specialists in Neurologic Physical Therapy.

Who Should Attend

Licensed Physical Therapists can attend these courses.  Courses are appropriate for clinicians enrolled in neurologic residency programs, clinicians preparing for the NCS exam (curriculum covers the Neurologic Description of Specialty Practice) or individuals who are interested in advancing their practice for persons with neurologic impairments.
