I wanted to follow up and say thank you to Rehab Essentials and the University of Montana. I completed my DPT there in 2013 and then a Certificate of Rehabilitation Administration in 2017. All of this additional training that built upon my original bachelor’s degree in PT enabled me to recently obtain an Assistant Professor appointment in the Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. This is made possible through the partnership between Northwestern and Shirley Ryan AbilityLab where I am currently a Therapy Manager.
If I had not gone on to get my DPT, my qualifications would not have been at the appropriate level to be reviewed for a faculty appointment. I am very thankful to the faculty in the Rehab Essentials program.
The University of Montana (UMT)/ Rehab Essentials tDPT Program has greatly influenced my career as a physical therapist and educator. I selected this program due to the amazing access it provides to the top academicians and clinicians in the profession. The added bonus was the reasonable cost and the ability to receive credit for my preparedness at the post-graduate Master’s level.
The University of Montana (UMT)/ Rehab Essentials tDPT Program is a fantastic education for which I am most grateful!
The experience I had with the tDPT program through The University of Montana exceeded my expectations in all ways. The courses were in a logical manner and were easy to follow. I enjoyed the “learn as you go” format that allowed me to study at my own pace and review material as needed. The CD lectures followed the syllabus and were easy to understand. Most sections had a textbook and/or reading material well defined. There were no surprises once the academic calendar was released if you followed the syllabus.
I enjoyed the ability to confer with my cohort in the discussion board and meet most of them at the Professional conference. The conference was a highlight of my experience as the material discussed was thought provoking and covered a wide range of topics. The faculty for the Professional conference was filled with leaders in the physical therapy field.
My highest recommendation for anyone wishing to further their education in an organized, interesting and thought provoking manner.
