In addition to meeting the requirements to maintain the Professional Academy Affiliation, the NMT Fellow will go through an Advanced Fellowship clinical peer review process following their initial NMT training and every 5 years after that, in order to demonstrate their advanced knowledge and mastery of the Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) techniques. Evaluation or clinical work voted as pass or resubmit based on a 70% majority vote.
Requirements for the NMT Fellowship include:
Bring or send three (3) video examples of three (3) different NMT techniques you used with your clients and/or patients. These techniques need to be from at least two (2) of the three domains (e.g. sensorimotor and cognition). The recordings should be no more than one (1) year old. The overall presentation including all three videos should be 10-15 minutes in length. Be prepared to provide the diagnoses and background of the client, as well the functional goal(s) you are working on. Remember: You are responsible for having the proper institutional and/or client releases.
Bring or send three (3) video examples of three (3) different NMT techniques you taught to your students (e.g. that includes explanations, demonstrations, and student facilitation with instructor feedback). These techniques need to be from at least two (2) of the three domains (e.g. sensorimotor and cognition). The recordings should be no more than one (1) year old.
Presentations must include published data from at least one study of your own work that is either basic science or translational clinical research related to NMT. Presentations should be no more than 20 minutes in length leaving additional time for discussion.
The NMT Fellow is encouraged to represent their NMT designation after their name and on all paperwork.
