About the CSRS™

The CSRS™ enables physical and occupational therapists to become preeminent stroke clinicians through a rigorous set of courses culminating in a written examination and internationally-recognized credential. The program consists of a four-tiered, stroke educational program.

The certification begins with 9-hours of foundational content, delivered via an online learning management system. This content includes foundational concepts in stroke and neurorehabilitation (e.g., motor learning; neuroanatomy), and lays the groundwork for live labs and didactics. Required “knowledge checks” are delivered after each online learning module. After completing all of the online learning content, attendees take part in live didactics and labs which build on this core knowledge, occurring in a Friday-Saturday-Sunday format on a single weekend. The four-course series culminates in an online test administered via a secure website. Successful test completion with a score of 80% or above grants the CSRS™ certification, which are placed behind one’s professional credentials.

Would You Like a CSRS™ T-Shirt With That?

Made of a canvas blend (really nice, soft, t-shirts), our distressed-gray T-shirts proudly display the CSRS logo on the front, in Winter Blue, with the words, “Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist”™ in black.

On the back appear the words “Eat, Sleep, Treat, Repeat”™ in distressed Winter Blue, overlaid onto a vintage brain rendering. Just below the brain are the words “Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy”  in black. 

S, M, L, and XL sizes are available, while supplies last. Short-sleeved shirts only available at this time. When you purchase through this website, $5.00 S/H will automatically be added to the price. For Ohio-based customers, an additional 7.5% tax is added (per state law – we wouldn’t do this stuff by choice, would we?!)

“Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist,”™ “CSRS,”™ and “Eat, Sleep, Treat, Repeat”™ are trademarks of Neurorecovery Unlimited, LLC and may not be used without express written permission.

Shirts can also be purchased when registering for a course.
