OUR EDUCATION MODEL

Defining Our Educational Model

Level I – Gait Rehabilitation – Core Concepts and Treatment Strategies – this course, available virtually or in person, provides clinicians with an in-depth framework of gait theory, rehabilitation principles, and analysis to effectively analyze and treat gait dysfunction. It is open to all professionals involved in gait rehabilitation, and offers 15 CEU credits for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants.

Completion of Level I is a prerequisite to enter into our Level II Certification Program.

Level II – Gait Rehabilitation Specialist (GRS) Certification – Launched in May 2024! –

The Mission Gait Academy is proud to introduce a groundbreaking gait certification for physical therapist and physical therapist assistants, fulfilling our vision to empower the rehabilitation community to better serve people experiencing gait dysfunction. This self-directed study is a series of five modules: including self-paced lectures, article selections, video supplements, and exams.

Completion of both Level I and Level II = Gait Rehabilitation Specialist Certification, and is a prerequisite to progress to Level III.

Level III – Advanced Gait Rehabilitation Specialist Certification (in-person) – FUTURE DEVELOPMENT!

Gait Rehabilitation Specialist Provider Network – Mission Gait will be creating a database of all certified Gait Rehabilitation Specialist providers, designating the level of completion: Level II or Advanced Level III. Published on the MGF website, this database will be accessible for patients/professionals/providers to utilize to find clinicians certified in gait training in as many places in the world as possible.
