SIMIO Health & Wellness is a restorative wellness center integrating PRI science and technique throughout our physical therapy and wellness products. We strive to remain both learners and educators in equal doses throughout our careers. We believe this is essential in remaining relevant to our client population and their physiologic needs. As a Certified Postural Restoration Center, we feel the science and application of PRI concepts and relative clinical decision making requires practice and clinical integration. We recognize that opportunity for clinicians to fully apply course content in the clinical setting is not always easily attained. SIMIO is committed to enhancement and delivery of the PRI technology through weekly staff inservice and mentorship. Over years of business development, we have fostered many inter-disciplinary relationships that allow our center to provide complete PRI interventions as presented in PRI coursework. We are happy to offer this opportunity to take part in clinical and interdisciplinary integration at SIMIO to qualified applicants of the PRI Mini-Residency program.
Application deadlines do not apply as residency opportunities may be available throughout the year. SIMIO will host one resident at a time and will work to coordinate the date and schedule with the applicant.
