Educational Institution for Physios Expands Doctoral Program to Canada and Caribbean

Evidence In Motion (EIM) is crossing borders to elevate the role of  physiotherapy on a global scale.  The Evidence In Motion Institute  of Health Professions (EIM) a U.S. based educational institution for  physical therapists has expanded their offerings into Canada and the Caribbean.  EIM provides a Transitional Doctorate of  Physical Therapy in Musculoskeletal Management for physiotherapists wishing  to bridge their bachelors or masters degree to the doctoral level. The program  is delivered using a dynamic blend of didactic, collaborative, and clinical  education experiences through online courses, weekend intensive hands-on  courses, and clinical practice hours.

“This degree program is an effective way for physiotherapists to keep up with  their evolving clinical responsibilities,” says EIM’s Transition DPT Program  Director Julie Whitman, PT, DSc. “We’ve developed the curriculum in such a way  that the students are not required to commit significant time away from their  practices. They can easily balance their education, practice, and personal lives  while obtaining their education from leaders in physiotherapy research, clinical  practice, education, and private practice management.”

The distance learning model used by EIM, which has proven effective for  American physical therapists, has been tailored to meet Canadian and Caribbean  physiotherapy requirements and is uniquely flexible. Because the majority of the  program is delivered online, the geographic isolation of countries in the  Caribbean and many Canadian cities does not encumber the professional  development of physiotherapists. EIM’s Transition DPT Program provides an  opportunity for practicing professionals to improve their patient care and  advance the role of physiotherapy in health care delivery in each Canadian  Province and all Caribbean islands.

“Our mission has always been to elevate and expand the role of physiotherapy in the  modern health care environment,” states Larry Benz, DPT, MBA, EIM founder and  principle. “It’s imperative for our industry to expand post-graduate education  and assert ourselves as a doctoring profession on a global scale. EIM’s  multinational doctorate program is aligned with our professional responsibility  to bridge the gap between the academic setting and clinical practice.”
