"We are excited and proud to introduce this second class of occupational and physical therapists from Aegis Therapies as they embark on a 10-month journey towards a transitional doctorate degree," said Martha Schram, President of Aegis Therapies. "The feedback from the first class of students who enrolled in the program this past fall has been extremely positive so we have decided to continue and expand the program."
Future plans for continued education opportunities are being developed as Aegis Therapies will sponsor seminars with RMUoHP's prestigious faculty. Aegis Therapies' evidence-based practice will compliment the clinical research conducted by RMUoHP. This research will contribute greatly to the industry, to therapists and most importantly to patients.
