Why GRS Academy?

As the worldwide training arm of Genesis Rehab Services, GRS Academy understands healthcare training needs from the inside out. Our progressive training model equips learners with the relevant knowledge and skills they need to provide high-quality care and fuel business success in today’s rapidly-evolving healthcare industry.

Here are just a few of the things that set GRS Academy apart:

Created by a U.S. Industry Leader

Founded more than 30 years ago, Genesis Rehab Services is one of the largest and most respected providers of rehabilitation and wellness services in the United States—with patient outcomes that consistently exceed industry averages. Our programs teach the same evidence-based approaches that have made GRS a U.S. industry leader.

Focused Squarely on the “Big-Win” Topics

The vast majority of healthcare trainings are focused on compliance and continuing education topics—but GRS Academy’s trainings are centered on the most pressing, systems-level challenges that today’s healthcare organizations face—from reducing re-admission rates, to improving operational efficiency, to lowering employee turn-over. Our “transformative learning solutions” are an investment in innovation and growth, not simply an unavoidable organizational expense.

Reaches Beyond the Online Classroom

While trainings offered by most other providers are entirely online, ours extend well beyond the online classroom all the way into the workplace. Our cost-effective train-the-trainer model and Knowledge to Action toolkits enable organizations to conveniently deliver on-ground and on-the-job training that complements our online courses—ensuring learners gain not only knowledge but also strong clinical skills and the ability to confidently apply those skills on the job.

Interdisciplinary Rather than Individual

While other training providers focus on helping individual learners gain new knowledge within a discrete discipline, GRS Academy focuses on building awareness and synergies across the entire interdisciplinary team, to more fully impact organizational behavior and outcomes. Our courses teach learners about their unique roles, and the roles of their colleagues, while providing opportunities to practice applying skills with other members of the interdisciplinary team.

Requires Active Engagement

Most training providers offer courses that are entirely video- and slide-based. Learners sit passively through hours of video and power point slides and, not surprisingly, often lose interest and tune out—ultimately absorbing very little. But our trainings offer a wide variety of activities—including games, simulations, discussions, and more—to keep learners interested while requiring their active participation and mental engagement.

Interactive Rather Than Solitary

Our programs allow learners to progress at their own pace in an “asynchronous” fashion—yet we have created a learner experience that is anything but lonely. Unlike other programs that learners must complete entirely in isolation, our online courses include frequent interaction with other learners and are actively facilitated by experienced healthcare practitioners.

Evidence-Based and Leading-Edge

The skills we teach are proven best practices that change lives. Our programs teach the same modern, evidence-based approaches for which GRS is known—and our curriculum remains aligned with internationally-accepted standards of care such as those set forth by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME).
