Extending the Reach of Physical Therapy: Mark Blackburn, PT, DPT, owner of Sports Rehab & Physical Therapy (Stephenville, Weatherford, Aledo)

Stephenville, TX - September 11, 2017 - The Evidence In Motion (EIM) Institute of Health Professions would like to recognize Mark Blackburn, PT, DPT of Sports Rehab & Physical Therapy for completing the Executive Program in Practice Management with a Post Professional 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 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 ongoing strategic partnership with the Private Practice Section of the APTA which has broadened our reach of private physical therapy practices."

The curricula are modeled after many of the top executive MBA programs in the country, utilizing a combination of online didactic and collaborative educational 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 500 physical therapists in its APTA Credentialed Residency and Fellowship Programs.

Mark has developed a strong knowledge of evidence-based business and best practices and has integrated this knowledge into Sports Rehab & Physical Therapy. Not only will Mark strengthen his practice to obtain competitive advantages in the market place, but he will also strengthen the private practice community as a whole. Mark also received a Post Professional Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the EIM Institute of Health Professions upon completion of the program by completing advanced coursework in Radiology, Medical Screening, Pharmacology and Evidence-based Practice.

With the added knowledge and experience Mark gained from completing EIM's Executive Doctorate Program, his practices will now provide physical therapy at a higher level to the Stephenville, Hico, Dublin, Weatherford, Aledo and surrounding communities.
