Concussion/mTBI Certification Program – Module 5 – Cape Canaveral

April 24, 2020 @ 9:00 AM - April 26, 2020 @ 6:00 PM EDT

$1400 – $1600

Goal and Learning Outcomes

The purpose of our Concussion/mTBI program is to inform healthcare providers about the incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of sports-related concussions and the potential for serious long-term outcomes such as dementia. Completion of this program will enable the healthcare practitioner to:Design and Implement a Concussion Treatment ProgramDesign and conduct a brain and vestibular rehabilitation programDesign evidence-based treatment plansUtilize a current evidence-based examination process to quantify brain function and human performanceDefine sports-related concussions and the sports in which they are most often foundDescribe the immediate and long-term symptoms of sports-related concussionsDiscuss expert recommendations for preventing/managing sports-related concussionsPrepare health care professionals with advanced knowledge and skills in diagnosis and treatment of Concussion/mTBI.

Who this program is for.

Our primary audience is healthcare professionals including Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Chiropractic Neurologists, Medical Physicians, Osteopaths, Acupuncturists, Neuropsychologists, Nurses, Athletic Trainers, Dentists, and allied health.  Please contact us if you have any questions about your eligibility for this program.

Scholars Enrolled in the Concussion/mTBI Program Receive:

Access to Flipped Classroom for preparation before each moduleQ-stream for continued learning after each module25 hours of lecture time within each moduleMedline Access2 years of access to the digital recording after each moduleAn invitation to the private concussion/mTBI Facebook group

This program prepares our Clinical Scholars to be able to:

Create innovative clinical environments designed to manage the Concussion/mTBI patient.Learn to evaluate and create individual programs to care for patients after Concussion/mTBI.Leverage evidence-based clinical practice to create a best practice that networks with other Concussion/mTBI specialists.


Prof. Frederick R. CarrickProfessor Carrick has 40 years of clinical practice in the treatment of Concussion/mTBI.  He has been described as the “Doctor to the Stars” and his pioneering work in this field has been featured on Prime Time Television, NEWS and Journals around the globe. He is sought out for Concussion/TBI treatment from Professional, Collegiate and Olympic Athletes as well as his ongoing research in the field.  His experience in this knowledge area is legend as is his ability to teach difficult subject material in a fashion that promotes mastery.Professor Carrick is a Senior Research Fellow at CCMHR in association with the University of Cambridge, UK, Professor of Neurology University of Central Florida College of Medicine, Orlando, Fl, Adjunct Professor MGH Institute of Health Professional Education, Boston, MA and Dean of Graduate Studies at the Carrick Institute, Cape Canaveral, Fl.

Course Length and Format

Clinical Scholars will be immersed in an interactive learning experience designed to create long term memory and skill acquisition.  The Carrick Institute training model has been researched, presented and published in the indexed scientific literature. This model is central to becoming a lifelong learner and master of clinical application.The course builds on each module and covers the entirety of information necessary to become an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of Concussion/mTBIThis is a 6-module program composed of 25 hours of lecture, flipped classroom, Q-stream, and examination for the competency of the material covered per module. This program is designed for maximal learning and retention.


Clinical Scholars who successfully complete this program and pass benchmark examinations given during each module will be awarded a Certificate of Completion from the Carrick Institute.

This course utilizes a vibrant flipped classroom and interactive educational model. Scholars will review course materials and assignments before attending the knowledge area module. This process maximizes learning so that the scholar can dedicate time specifically to the application of the knowledge area module.Each scholar will also have free access to Medline where they can search and download clinical and scientific papers.  All of the information necessary for the course is located in the scholar’s learners portal. This private area is specific for the individual scholar and designed for maximum interaction and learning.
