    NeuroRTI is on a mission to create, promote, and train practitioners in a culture of evidence-based practice (EBP) within the neurologic physical therapy profession. Through transformational education efforts, NeuroRTI created a large nationally-scaled physical therapy Neurologic Residency which includes various topics in the treatment of spinal cord dysfunction, acquired brain injury, and other neurologic disorders. NeuroRTI uses state of the art learning tools to develop practitioners skilled in the integration of neurologic physical therapy techniques and evidence-based practice principles into an advanced clinical decision-making framework.
