Delafield, Wis, August 15, 2010 — Aegis Therapies proudly announces the completion of a new facility for Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions (RMUoHP) in Provo, UT. The 10,000-square-foot building was unveiled at recent open house and is being used by the inaugural class of 41 students in RMUoHP’s residential DPT program.

The new residential program is full-time and for entry-level therapists. It incorporates technological and clinical advances as well as contemporary educational theory. The program adds to RMUoHP’s array of post-professional graduate programs for therapists motivated to pursue a Doctorate degree and develop knowledge, skills, and behaviors commensurate with contemporary evidence-based practice and education standards.

Aegis has awarded three students in the inaugural DPT class with one-year tuition scholarships. RMUoHP DPT students awarded Aegis scholarships will work for Aegis for at least two years upon graduation.

“Aegis is proud to partner with Rocky Mountain University to help train the next generation of rehabilitation therapists and further the professional development of today’s therapists,” said Martha Schram, President of Aegis Therapies. “We look forward to adding our Rocky Mountain University scholarship recipients to our family.”

The open house held May 11 was hosted by RMUoHP on their Provo, UT campus and included a ribbon-cutting ceremony with representatives from the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce. Over 250 attendees heard remarks from the president of RMUoHP, Dr. Richard P. Nielsen, as well as the president of the American Physical Therapy Association, Dr. Scott Ward, and the president of the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce, Steve Densley.

In addition to the ceremony, RMUoHP staff conducted guided tours of the campus, including the new physical therapy building, for students in the new DPT program.
