Shelby points out that the most beneficial part for her was the mentorship she received. Knowing that every week she was going to have 3 hours of mentorship allowed her to progress her skills more quickly. Because neurologic patients can be very complex, it is beneficial to have a mentor to bounce ideas off of.

Why should you get a residency? This is a decision that carries a lot of weight and is not just credentials that go behind your name. You should want to invest yourself in this area of physical therapy. Getting an NCS is a commitment, but it is one that will help you to move evidence based practice forward.

When shouldn’t you do a residency? If you “kinda” like an area of practice, but you’re not really sure. If you just want to see what an NCS residency is like, then this type of training is not the way to go. Residency is a blood, sweat, and tears type of deal.
