The Future of Clinical Neuroscience
Over the past 6 years, the Carrick Institute has been hard at work behind the scenes creating what will become one of the most influential programs in modern healthcare. This NEW CI program was designed with one purpose in mind – to develop an evidence-based, application-driven educational series, which teaches easy-to-implement clinical strategies in just 5 modules. In the end, we are confident that ReceptorBased® Essentials (RBE) will allow you to deliver unprecedented clinical results to your patients.
Healthcare Needs You..
The healthcare community, as well as the patients trusting in the healthcare community, are recognizing the need for solutions beyond medications for many neurological conditions such as concussion, autism, ADHD, pain syndromes, and more. People are seeking out ways to truly rehabilitate their brain rather than solely medicate it. By translating current research into an approach which assesses your patients’ neurological-individualities, and provides them with precise, neurological treatments, delivered with repetition and intensity, you can offer your practice the power of neuroplasticity. The ReceptorBased® Approach will deliver your patients the outcomes that they expect and truly deserve.
ReceptorBased® Essentials is Here!
You care about your patients, and you care about delivering the best outcomes to assist with their recovery. Through the addition of a modern, neurologically-based model to your already outstanding talents, you can individualize your approach to each patient and provide them with a service that they will not be able to find elsewhere. For some, the endeavor to study neuroscience appears to be a daunting task. Before ReceptorBased® Essentials, learning to apply clinical neuroscience effectively, was at least a 2-year commitment. Over 16,000 clinicians from all branches of healthcare have taken that journey with the Carrick Institute, and are grateful to have advanced their clinical acumen and careers; even if it meant that traveling every month, being away from their loved ones, studying hard, and trying to implement what they’ve learned in their practices.
The demand for a patient-specific, precision approach to healthcare is greater than ever. But, if you’re reading this, you already know that. You already have the desire to learn how, but you may not have time to dedicate to a 2-year program. ReceptorBased® Essentials was developed for you; the person with the desire to be the best clinician possible, but with a limited amount of time to do so. ReceptorBased® Essentials is the ONLY five-module, 85-hour program, consisting of LIVE, hands-on, research-supported, clinically-proven training, taught in a research-validated method, to enable you to apply ReceptorBased® Rehabilitation effectively in your practice.
One of the many elements that sets ReceptorBased® Essentials apart from any other program is how it was created. A job analysis was performed on active, practicing Chiropractic Neurologists, in successful practices, who were leveraging a neuroscience-model of care. We assessed the characteristics of their patient populations and asked them to report the clinical applications that they felt were effective at helping their patients. The results allowed us to identify the types of patients that are seen in the practices of providers that specialize in clinical neuroscience. We were also able to uncover the most-often used clinical tools, assessments and applications; as well as the academic concepts that these doctors felt contributed most to their success with patients.
This information allowed us to establish the most common applications that we needed to teach, so we did what any responsible educator would do… we performed a literature search for information on these applications. We collected the evidence, making sure that it was current, and not more than 5 years old. And we have those papers for you to read and use as an evidence-basis for your practice.
What this means to you is:
- You will learn the most commonly utilized clinical assessments and applications used by the most successful clinicians in practice.
- You can be confident knowing that the concepts are effective and supported by current research in the literature.
- You will be able to help your patients more effectively than you ever thought possible, without having to commit hundreds of hours and years of time to do so.
Clinicians Enrolled in the Program will Recieve:
- A flipped classroom for each module
- 15 credit hour courses for RBE1-5
- A program workbook provided in class
- 3 months of unlimited access to Medline upon completion of the module

ReceptorBased® Essentials Curriculum
RBE 1: Foundational Concepts in Clinical Neuroscience (C.N.S)
Foundational Concepts in Clinical Neuroscience is designed to set the foundation for the RBE Certificate Course by providing the skills and knowledge required to observe patients with a neurological lens. This perspective will allow you to understand how that individual receives, interprets, and responds to the world in which they live. Knowledge and understanding of C.N.S will allow you to enhance the function, quality of life, and performance of your clients and patients so that they can live a life of decreased pain, better function, clearer thinking, and optimal performance.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Learn and Implement the “ABCs of Clinical Neuroscience” and how to observe your patient population through a neurological lens.
- Provide an evolutionary perspective of neurological development that applies to neurological development and rehabilitation in your patient population.
- Master the application of concepts such as the Central Integrated State, Effective Dose Model, Neuro-plasticity, and pertinent neuroanatomy in the context of neurological rehabilitation.
RBE 2: Harnessing Receptor Systems in Therapy
Harnessing Receptor Systems was designed to build upon the concepts in RBE1 and empower a provider with strategies to optimize brain function and performance. By combining your expertise, with ReceptorBased® physiology, this module will provide you with the science, research, and training needed to begin implementing effective neurological applications and programs in your specialty.
