Whitney Hope, PA-C

“Even though I have been practicing for over 25 years, the OTD program at RMUoHP has opened my mind and eyes to a future I never thought possible nor considered. This curriculum has taught me the importance and value of becoming an evidence-based practitioner, and there is no going back from what I now know. I am most grateful for the education I have received and the relationships formed with new mentors and colleagues that have inspired both my personal and professional growth during my time here.”

Carly Wells DNP, RN-BC SCL
“From start to finish, my experience at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions has been rewarding. The faculty are some of the brightest in the country and are supportive and available for you in more ways than just academia. Through my didactic experiences, advancement of clinical experience with tailored internships, and focus on becoming an evidence-based practitioner, I feel I have successfully transitioned into a successful physical therapist. Because of my experience at RMUoHP and through the excellent clinical experience, I secured a job before graduation, passed my NPTE with high scores, and feel confident in my future.”
