Physical therapy residency programs are unique learning experiences that guide learners into specialty practice. The Baylor Scott & White Health (BSWH) and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB) Neurologic Residency will provide academic and clinical mentorship to launch a resident into specialty practice, addressing neurologic conditions across the continuum of care.
With a full range of services (acute care, inpatient rehab and outpatient neuro clinics), the program is a partnership between BSWH – Hillcrest in Waco and UMHB in Belton. Both institutions are grounded in Christian principles and a commitment to excellence, while addressing the needs of underserved communities.
The resident will work as a clinician at BSWH, receiving guided learning experiences focused on evidence-based practice. The residency will provide access to a diverse patient mix across multiple practice settings and will be facilitated by staff trained in neurorehabilitation.
Completion of a Neurologic Residency provides the resident a fast-track pathway to prepare for, and sit for, the ABPTS Neurologic Clinical Specialist exam.
The program will have 1 resident each cycle, which is 12 months in duration, beginning March 1st, 2021.
