COLUMBIA FALLS, MT (November 29, 2021) – Montana-based Rehab Essentials, Inc, announced Syllabi Consultancy is the newest Endorsed Affiliate for the transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy (tDPT) program from the University of Montana and Rehab Essentials. As a Rehab Essentials Endorsed Affiliate, Syllabi Consultancy will help provide physiotherapists in central and eastern countries in Africa the opportunity to advance their professional education. Physiotherapists can earn a tDPT online from the University of Montana at a cost that is proportional to the market differential between the US and their respective countries.

“Over the past few decades we have seen exponential growth and change in Africa, and we believe it can only be sustained by increasing accessibility to education.” says Gasim Ali. ”At Syllabi Consultancy we were lucky to develop a strong relationship with Rehab Essentials whereby we are able to facilitate the region’s only tDPT credential from UM, and we believe this will invigorate conversations about physical therapy education, research and development.”
The tDPT is designed with working rehabilitation therapists in mind. As an online distance learning program, working professionals will have the opportunity to balance work, life and school while earning a doctorate degree from a university in the United States, and all with a budget-friendly tuition. The contemporary online format allows students to engage with a world-class curriculum from virtually anywhere, on their schedule, and at their pace. Students will have access to a diverse online community of their peers and award-winning faculty who are recognized subject matter experts. Throughout the evidence-based program at the University of Montana, students will gain advanced critical thinking, professional knowledge, behavior, and skills to become a leader in their respective field. The degree program is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).
“We are excited to welcome Syllabi Consultancy as a Rehab Essentials Endorsed Affiliate for the tDPT. When I started Rehab Essentials 15 years ago, my goal was to improve the standards of the physical therapy profession and to help advance therapists’ careers in a flexible and affordable manner around the world. I wanted to provide an online, affordable, and more flexible path to an accredited clinical doctorate for practicing physical therapists.,” says Dr. Steve Tepper, founder and president of Rehab Essentials. “Syllabi Consultancy shares in this vision and we are excited to work with them.”
