Course Description: 

This evidence-based course will provide clinicians the ability to evaluate and manage patients with common vestibular disorders. A variety of education materials will be presented in order to enhance learning via lecture, video, and hands on lab sessions. The course is intended to enhance the clinician’s ability to determine central vs. peripheral vertigo, appropriateness of vestibular rehabilitation, and manage patients experiencing dizziness from unilateral/bilateral vestibular loss, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), and central vestibular disorders. This is an introductory course intended for physical therapists, and physical therapist assistants.
