Our vestibular rehabilitation course includes intense online coursework as well as hands-on labs. The online education provides clinicians a convenient and flexible path to advanced training in vestibular rehabilitation. Upon completion of the 14-week online coursework, participants will have the opportunity to attend 2 full days of hands-on labs in Austin, TX and Madison, WI. The hands-on labs will be held at Texas State University, the University of Wisconsin, or 360 Balance & Hearing Center. Upon successful demonstration of the clinical training, participants are also required to successfully complete a written examination to receive their competency-based certificate in vestibular rehabilitation. Participants also can opt out of the hands-on labs and final exam to receive a course completion certificate.
The coursework will provide weekly educational modules on a variety of evidence-supported vestibular related topics. Participants will have access to live online weekly coaching calls, preparatory quizzes, and a classroom discussion forum. Faculty of the program includes a variety of expert medical professionals covering topics in the areas of: neuro-otology, neurology, neuro-ophthalmology, psychiatry, primary care, physical/occupational therapy, audiology, neuro-optometry, and psychology. The primary focus is assessment and treatment of peripheral and central vestibular disorders, understanding the importance of medical management, and recognizing the role of vestibular diagnostics and comprehensive audiograms.
The course is designed for clinicians who have experience working with patients with vestibular dysfunction and/or who have completed coursework in vestibular rehabilitation. The content is more targeted for physical therapists and occupational therapists due to the emphasis on clinical evaluation and treatment. Other medical professionals, such as audiologists, physicians, chiropractors and/or neuro-optometrists may participate.

"This course elevated my entire knowledge base on the wide scope of vestibular therapy & how it can be used to assist the vestibular population and beyond. I was able to take my chronic concussion patient from not being able to tolerate crowds to grocery shopping independently, my vestibular migraine patient can now watch her daughter's volleyball games, and a stroke patient can do 'tree pose' in yoga with her eyes closed. My largest 'win' is that my clinic now understands how important vestibular rehab is."

"The online format is fantastic! I can't imagine absorbing a week's worth of material at the Emory course! Then not being able to view the material again. The CCVR course allowed me to review selected lectures multiple times. I would highly recommend the CCVR course to any therapist interested in developing their expertise regarding vestibular rehab."
- Bob S., PT, DPT, Oklahoma
"I now have more tools to screen all the possible causes of dizziness as well as the ability and exercises to treat related impairments. This course helped me see the bigger picture to treat my patient in all aspects."
- Stacy S., PT, Texas
"Definitely challenged my knowledge of central disorders and now feel much more comfortable with these diagnoses. Thanks for being such a great course! The on-sites were well hosted. All faculty were amazing! Best "bang for buck" course ever!
- Joel J., PT, DPT, OCS, Texas
"I attended a small one day vestibular rehab course in Iowa provided by a PT with her Emory certification. This course cam highly recommended. I previously worked with a vestibular rehab physical therapist who relocated & I wanted to continue serving this population. This course format allowed me to continue working full-time, implementing the info, while also receiving my certificate."

"I loved the atmosphere - it was very non threatening, which is such an amazing way to learn - learning from each other - great balance of all activities. I never felt like I couldn't ask questions or were rushed. Thank you so much for everything. Having been through vestibular problems myself - advancing this in our profession means the world to me. Everything about this class just helped to further drive and hold dear that passion. Thank you!"
