Neurological Residency Program
Marquette University Neurologic PT Residency Program
Co-sponsored by Zablocki VA Medical Center
Our mission is to prepare physical therapy residents for advanced specialty practice. The program cultivates high level neurologic physical therapists who integrate the teacher-scholar model into their clinical practice. Through neurologic clinical experiences under the mentorship of master clinicians, along with didactic learning experiences in neurology including both teaching and research, the program develops advanced physical therapy practitioners who care for the whole patient, embodying the spirit of cura personalis.
Residents typically start the year-long program the last Monday of June. They are employed by the Zablocki VA Hospital, and therefore need to be a US citizen. Residents treat their neurologic patient caseload ~30 hrs/wk, rotating through acute inpatient rehab, spinal cord rehab, and outpatient neurology, as well as some outside experiences in pediatrics and traumatic brain injury. Residents are also involved in mentoring sessions with expert clinicians 2-4 hrs/wk, didactic coursework 2 hrs a week, monthly and bimonthly specialty clinics, as well as research involvement and a variety of teaching opportunities at Marquette University throughout the year. Our program became an APTA accredited Neurologic Residency Program in July 2010 and is now accredited through November 30, 2025. Residents who successfully complete the program are eligible to apply to sit for the NCS exam.
