Stay current in vestibular medicine with our online Competency in Vestibular Rehabilitation Recertification Course!
Refresh your memory, renew your skills, and stay up to date with key concepts and techniques in vestibular medicine.
The purpose of this recertification course is two-fold: 1) to provide participants with updated and novel evidence-based concepts in vestibular medicine and 2) to reflect on your professional growth from competency to proficiency. After completing your competency-based course(s) and putting your knowledge and skills into practice, it’s likely you can more clearly and quickly identify relevant and irrelevant information. Having more experiences in vestibular-related patient care provides us with more confidence to utilize our working knowledge and apply it to solving new problems. We gain a deeper understanding of alternative options and our decision-making capabilities become less labored and intuitive.
The recertification course reflects your ability to apply your knowledge base through class discussions, quizzes, and clinical applications in more complex ways.
The Competency in Vestibular Rehabilitation Recertification Course is designed for a graduate of a vestibular certificate program including, but not limited to, the following:
- Certificate of Competency in Vestibular Rehabilitation (CCVR) Course - 360 Neuro Health Institute
- Vestibular Rehabilitation: A Competency-Based Course - Emory University School of Medicine | Division of Physical Therapy
