Interview Selection and Process

Qualified candidates may be selected to interview for a MedStar NRH/GW neurologic residency. The interview process is designed to evaluate each candidate's communication skills, professionalism, match to the MedStar NRH/GW mission, and his or her understanding of the role of neurologic physical therapy in today's health care environment. Residents will develop and present a case-study to highlight their neurologic clinical decision-making process with a past or current patient. The on-site interview occurs in-person on the MedStar NRH campus in February.
