On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Brent Brookbush joins me to discuss the state of physical therapy education. Dr. Brookbush has been an impassioned human movement professional since 1998, a passion that can only be matched by his love for education.  Developing a presentation style focused on the clear and engaging delivery of evidence-based, practical education, he has been a resource for industry giants such as, New York Sports Clubs (TSI), Equinox, NASM, SHAPE Magazine, Power Plate, BeachBody. Etc.  As the founder and CEO of the Brookbush Institute of Human Movement Science, Dr. Brookbush continues to revolutionize education in the industry with cutting edge online resources, live workshops, academic support for universities, as well as providing consulting and print publications. He continues to pursue his passion as CEO, educator, author and speaker, as well as practicing as an independent clinician in New York City.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The evolution of physical therapy education and emerging education models

-Ways multimedia can enrich the learning experience for different learning styles

-Simple solutions to raising costs of physical therapy tuition and student debt

-Brookbush Institute: a multimedia continuing education resource

-And so much more!

 

Multimedia education models allow for optionality when engaging different learning styles at various price points. Ultimately, Brent believes, “We have a chance here to bring down tuition costs significantly.” With physical therapy schools opting for traditional in-person exclusive educational models, Brent believes, “PT schools, for the most part, are lagging severely behind.”

 

With the current state of physical therapy school education up for debate, Brent stresses, “The APTA has to stop chasing the medical model.”

 

Physical therapy practice continues to evolve and it can be challenging to remain current with new information. Brent promotes, “Have an educational game plan.”
