The Academy is the not-for-profit educational arm of the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. We offer a wide range of accredited online and in-person courses, webinars, and hands-on programs with the common goal of improving patient outcomes. 

The Academy is committed to creating an inclusive, authentic and comfortable learning environment that celebrates and supports all learners. We are dedicated to providing the highest-quality teaching regardless of race, age, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation/identity, ability, religion, language or culture. Above all, we believe that everyone should feel safe, respected and welcomed when attending our programs at the hospital or online. We encourage the sharing of experiences and perspectives so we can learn from one another, and from our varied points of view.
