Evidence In Motion (EIM), a company created to assist in the continued education of physical therapists, is pleased to announce an official partnership with Big Stone Therapies (BST), a progressive provider of rehabilitation services in Minnesota. As part of the collaboration, BST becomes an EIM Network Partner, allowing collaboration on the delivery of EIM’s Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency, Sports Physical Therapy Residency, Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship, Transition DPT in Musculoskeletal Management, and Manual Physical Therapy Certification training programs.
“We have always placed significant importance on the continued professional development of our therapists,” states BST co-founder and CEO Wade Van Dover, PT. “This partnership will help us move forward, staying on the cutting edge of education and training in the rehabilitation world. Our goal of ‘excellence in patient care’ will continue with this partnership and allow our therapists to meet the needs of the many and varied patients who walk through our doors.”
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 Physical Therapy Residency, Sports Physical Therapy Residency, Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship, Transition DPT in Musculoskeletal Management, and Manual Physical Therapy 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.
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 in and has successfully used to graduate over 100 physical therapists in its APTA credentialed Residency and Fellowship Programs.
Many members of EIM’s faculty are recognized internationally for their contributions to education, research, and clinical practice. EIM’s faculty have 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.
BST will serve as a training location for EIM’s clinical residencies, fellowship, and traditional continuing education curriculum. The partnership will also allow BST 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 BST staff, enhancing lifelong learning and quality improvement initiatives for many of their professional personnel.
