AMSI seeks to service all allied health professionals with furthering their knowledge in Vestibular Pathologies, Vestibular Hypofunction, and Differential of the Dizzy Patient, Concussion Management, and Concussion return to life programs. It is a comprehensive approach that provides therapeutic reasoning, therapeutic treatment, manual therapy, and modalities to address the impairments of a dizzy patient. Our clients are physical therapists, occupational therapist, athletic trainers, PTAs, COTAS and students in the respective programs.

AMSI takes in consideration the need for the learner to not just receive CEUs but to obtain useful knowledge that can improve quality of life of the patients the practitioner serves. The courses are taught by therapists that are actively treating and have years of clinical experience. The knowledge is presented in a format that is user friendly and readily usable in any setting without the need of expensive equipment. Due to the nature of the content therapists in all settings will find the courses fit their individual needs and the skills taught. Therapists in home health, acute care, outpatient, sports and all aspect of patient care will find the course content exceeds their expectations and meets their needs to be competent in the content being instructed. Once participants complete the course they receive the designation and credentials of Cert. VRS which only AMSI can offer.
