TIRR Memorial Hermann Neurologic Residency
    The TIRR Memorial Hermann Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency Program is accreditated by the American Physical Therapy Association as a post-professional residency program for physical therapists in Neurology. We offer a 52-week program which includes a wide range of clinical and didactic experiences across the lifespan and continuum of care. This collaborative program provides licensed physical therapists the opportunity for mentorship to enhance their skills while working with clinical experts in the area of neurologic physical therapy and academicians of two major educational institutions.

    Our mission is to provide evidence-based, post-professional education in neurologic physical therapy and to develop expert clinicians who utilize cutting edge interventions, interdisciplinary collaboration and compassion to achieve the best clinical outcomes. This mission is accomplished by basing the program on the foundational sciences and allowing the residents the opportunity to experience the entire continuum of care.
