Neurologic Clinical Residency Program

The Winston-Salem State University Physical Therapy Neurologic Clinical Residency Program, in partnership with Novant Health, allows licensed physical therapists to elevate their clinical practice, advance their careers and become leaders in the physical therapy profession.

Throughout the 12-month program, residents work in neurologic care alongside mentors at Novant facilities across the region. Residents also take courses and provide guest lectures to students in WSSU’s Department of Physical Therapy.

In alignment with WSSU’s Strategic Plan, residents also identify a health equity solution to improve the care of patients who visit one of the program’s free community clinics. 

The program has achieved candidacy status in 2018 and is anticipating full accreditation in 2020 by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education.
