The Neurological Physical Therapy Residency Program, in conjunction with Norton Neuroscience Institute and Bellarmine University, is a patient-centered program providing advanced physical therapy clinical training. The program promotes the application of evidence-based knowledge and skills with emphasis on service and lifelong learning.
The program supports the mission of Norton Healthcare by providing high-quality health care and education to all those we serve in a manner that responds to the needs of our communities, honors our faith heritage and celebrates our values. This environment produces leaders with advanced neurological rehabilitation training who will make a lasting contribution to their local and professional communities. Through this program, residents and staff educate, advocate, empower and improve the quality of life of our patients, their families, caregivers and our community.
The APTA-credentialed residency program is 52 weeks long and begins each January. A typical week includes approximately 26 hours of unmentored clinical practice, three hours of mentored clinical practice, one to two hours of resident/physician conferences and/or didactic coursework, two to four hours of teaching neuroscience and rehabilitation courses, four hours attending specialty clinics or shadowing physicians, two hours conducting clinical research and one hour providing community service.
Residents have the unique opportunity to work with patients with diverse neurological diagnoses across the acute care and outpatient settings at Norton Healthcare, acute rehabilitation at Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Center and in partnership with other community resources. Each resident spends time in specialty clinics and with therapists and physicians who are specialists in their field. This position also includes teaching responsibilities for entry-level neurological lectures and laboratories at Bellarmine University’s Division of Physical Therapy. In addition, residents participate in clinical research and complete a case study during their residency year.
