Extending the Reach of Physical Therapy

Pella —

The Evidence In Motion (EIM) Institute of Health Professions would like to recognize Dr. Troy Vander Molen, PT, DPT of Work Systems Rehab & Fitness, P.C. for completing the Executive Program in Private Practice Management with Postprofessional Doctorate of Physical Therapy.
EIM’s Executive Program is an MBA-style, 12-month educational program for physical therapists that provides training in practice management and business administration.  It is the first program of its kind within the physical therapy profession and is designed to enhance the business savvy and sophistication of private practice physical therapy by teaching evidence-based business. Physical therapists who complete the program gain industry specific knowledge and best practice solutions in the areas of strategy, leadership, human resources, marketing, finance, legal and business development. The ultimate outcome of the program is designed to enhance the role of physical therapists in the delivery of cost effective health care.
“The greatest benefit of the Executive Program is the expanding community of private practices that continue to collaborate and cross consult with each other well after the completion of the 12-month course,” states Larry Benz, PT, DPT, OCS, MBA, EIM owner, and Executive Program Director.  “We are very proud of these graduates who are now better equipped for the challenging environment.  We are fortunate to have an on-going strategic partnership with the Private Practice Section of the APTA which has broadened our reach of private physical therapy practices.” 
The curricula is modeled after many of the top executive MBA programs in the country, utilizing a combination of online didactic and collaborative education experiences in a series of weekend intensive on-sites. Based on educational research, the hybrid model of online education and on-site intensives demonstrates a best-in-education approach.  This is the exact approach that EIM was founded on and has successfully used to graduate over 200 physical therapists in its APTA credentialed Residency and Fellowship Programs.
