The Healthcare Education Transformation Podcast

Dec 30, 2022

If you are looking for a new way to look at Physical Therapy education, you will not want to miss this episode

On this episode of the Healthcare Education Transformation Podcast, we talk with Mary Blackington and the work she's doing with enTandemDPT, powered by Rehab Essentials in order to change Physical Therapy schooling for the future. In this episode, we discuss the collaborative DPT program curriculum they have developed, how this helps professors save time to do what they want to do, how students will become more effective and competent future physical therapists. This is Part 2 of a 2 part episode. 

Mary Blackinton PT, EdD is the Director of enTandem DPT Program, a component of Rehab Essentials Inc. Previously, she was the Director of the DPT Program at Nova Southeastern University-Tampa, the first completely hybrid (blended) Doctor of Physical Therapy program from 2011-2020. She worked as a full-time faculty at NSU from 1994-2010, and Director of NSU’s T-DPT program from 2001-2010. Her areas of teaching and practice include motor control/motor learning, geriatric and neurological physical therapy, and frameworks for PT practice. She received her BS in Physical Therapy from University of Maryland-Baltimore, MS from Nova University in Gerontology, and her Doctor of Education (EdD) from Nova Southeastern University. She was board certified as a Geriatric Clinical Specialist (GCS) from 2009-2019 (now Emeritus) and is an Educational Leadership Institute (ELI) fellow since July 2013.

If he helps some others with terminal degrees or other healthcare clinicians along the way, then it’s a bonus! He is also the owner of , FGI Consulting, and Epic Therapy and Wellness.
