Rehabilitation Residencies for Allied Healthcare Professionals

NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation offers residency training in three physical therapy subspecialties to healthcare professionals who wish to advance the development of their clinical skills.

Our Acute Care Physical Therapy Residency is recognized as an accredited program by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education (ABPTRFE). Trainees in this one-year post-professional program receive hands-on experience together with expert-level mentorship while practicing physical therapy in an acute care environment. Residents work with patients who are in the hospital for illness, surgery, or recovery from trauma.

Our Neurologic Physical Therapy Residency is accredited by ABPTRFE as a post-professional residency program for physical therapists in neurology. This one-year program trains clinicians to deliver expert specialty care to patients with neurologic conditions.

We also serve as a clinical site for the Clinical Residency in Orthopedic Physical Therapy offered at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, which is accredited by ABPTRFE as a post-professional residency program for physical therapists in orthopedic physical therapy. Residents complete the clinical component of this one-year program with our world-renowned faculty and staff at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center.

Residents in our programs have the opportunity to work with one of the most diverse patient populations in the country in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Our residencies provide future clinicians with the foundation they need to pursue careers in physical therapy and its associated subspecialties and prepare them for additional fellowship training.
