Evidence In Motion Partners With Avera Health

Louisville, KY (April 17, 2015)

Evidence In Motion (EIM), a company created to assist in the continued education of physical therapists, is pleased to announce an official partnership with Avera Health. As part of the collaboration, Avera’s numerous locations throughout South Dakota and the surrounding states will become a Network Partner with EIM.

Using the most up-to-date research and cutting edge technology, EIM is transforming the way physical therapists are trained and educated. EIM’s Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy Residencies, Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship, Postprofessional DPT programs, and certification training programs are delivered to the physical therapist, where they live and work, through web-based educational “distance learning” platforms. Online learning is complimented by a thorough mentoring program and on-site weekend intensives conducted at Network Partner locations throughout the United States.

Many members of EIM’s faculty are recognized internationally for their contributions to education, research, and clinical practice. EIM’s faculty has received ninety-five-plus research grants, totaling over $10.5 million. EIM faculty members have also taught 220-plus university level courses, founded over forty different business organizations, and held appointed positions in forty-plus state and 115-plus national and international professional associations. Under their supervision, Residents and Fellows have the opportunity to receive the highest caliber of training and become distinguished leaders in evidence-based orthopaedic and manual physical therapy practice.

Avera Health clinics will serve as a training location for EIM’s clinical residencies, fellowship, and traditional continuing education curriculum. The partnership will also allow Avera to expand their internal clinical education and research activities. Several of the offerings included in the Residency and Fellowship curricula will be made available to other Avera staff, enhancing lifelong learning and quality improvement initiatives for many of their professional personnel.
