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.

Location and Directions

The May CSRS course will be held at the Kessler Rehabilitation Center located at 1199 Pleasant Valley Way, West Orange, NJ 07052. All participants should park in the main hospital parking lot. Once you arrive, follow the signs to the main entrance (do not go to outpatient or the Kessler Foundation). All participants will need to come in the main entrance for a covid health screening and tell the staff they are attending the CSRS course. Participants will not be permitted to enter the building if: they have a fever over 100 degrees, 1 or more of the following new symptoms (chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell), or 2 or more of the following new symptoms (muscle or body aches, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose). After completing your health screening, participants will be directed to the Kessler Conference Center. Participants must wear masks at all times, except when eating or drinking. To help ensure the safety of everyone, all training surfaces (tables/plinths/etc) will be cleaned at the end of each day, between different participants and hand sanitizer will be available. While there is no dress code for the course, we do recommend you wear comfortable clothing (e.g. athletic wear).

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

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.

For Ohio-based customers, an additional 7.5% tax is added (per state law – we wouldn’t do this stuff by choice, would we?!)
