About the Neurologic Residency Program


MUSC has a rich 40+ year history of educating physical therapists at the entry- and post-professional levels. Our academic and clinical faculty have many years of clinical and educational experience in various specialties, holding board certifications in orthopedic, neurological, and pediatric physical therapy.

The MUSC Neurologic Physical Therapy program is designed as a hybrid program, blending clinical experience, and mentoring with online and in-person didactic work. Throughout the course of the residency, the resident will attend weekly virtual meetings as well as four intensive weekends in Charleston throughout the year.

This program is designed to advance your practice and prepare you for the Neurologic Physical Therapy Specialist Certification (NCS) Examination.


The MUSC Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency Program is accredited by the American Physical Therapy Association as a post-professional residency program for physical therapists in neurology.
