(PRWEB) January 29, 2012
Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists (ColPTS) today announced that it is very pleased to partner with Evidence In Motion (EIM) and Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions to launch a progressive internship program for physical therapy clinical education. The new program, called the Clinical Excellence Network (CEN), is designed to standardize the curriculum, training, performance evaluation and development of physical therapists who have reached the clinical internship stage of their career. ColPTS is one of only five clinics in the nation to be selected for this dynamic program.
“EIM is excited to partner with clinics like Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists that are on the cutting-edge of physical therapy,” says EIM Co-founder Larry Benz, DPT, MBA. “They have a great reputation in the community and believe in our mission to raise the bar of academic standards for physical therapy internships.”
Last week, Colorado Physical Therapy Specialist welcomed two physical therapy interns from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions to their Fort Collins, CO clinics. The interns are assigned to the clinic for a period of one year. While at the clinic, the intern’s training will be designed around actual patient interactions and a series of online courses. Upon successfully completing their internship, the interns will return to Rocky Mountain University to graduate with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
“Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists is honored to partner with EIM and Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions to launch this innovative, next-generation clinical education system that will produce a pipeline of highly-skilled physical therapists,” states ColPTS owner and Internship Director Terry Gebhardt, PT, DPT. “Better trained physical therapists using proven reliable treatments will result in improved patient outcomes. The long-term effect this program will have on healthcare is invaluable.”
