Rochester Regional Health Neurologic Residency
    The mission of the Rochester Regional Health Residency In Neurologic Physical Therapy is to mentor the professional development and advanced clinical training of neurologic physical therapists so they may exemplify the core values of physical therapy professionalism and may capably contribute to the field of neurorehabilitation through leadership and skill as practitioners, educators, and clinical scholars who understand, value, and practice guided by current evidence.

    The residency is a 12 month program, with two six-month rotations across two clinical sites: acute inpatient rehab and outpatient neurologic.

    The program utilizes the Neurologic Physical Therapy Professional Education Consortium as a portion of the program's didactic curriculum. This consists of twenty-six weekly webinars, each of which are two hours in length, covering a broad range of topics that support content of the description of neurologic specialty practice for neurologic physical therapy. The webinar portion of the neuroconsortium is a program requirement. Residents are responsible for the tuition cost. Residents may also elect to participate in the on-site portion of the neuroconsortium, however this is not a program requirement. As with the webinar portion, residents are responsible for tuition and any associated travel/lodging costs.

    - Hold a current license to practice physical therapy in the state of New York by the start of the residency program
