Do you have difficulty finding qualified faculty? Do you look for ways to develop your junior faculty into senior faculty?

Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions (RMU) has developed an online Academic Faculty Residency program.  A full didactic component along with active applied mentorship experiences is designed to support a new instructor’s transition into a role as a full-time productive faculty member.  At this time we are seeking affiliate institutions to host a resident within the faculty residency. The affiliate site will act as the practice setting providing individual mentorship to the resident in education, scholarship, service, and governance in higher education. RMU will provide the overall curriculum, direction, accreditation, and didactic component of the residency. 

An affiliate site must be an institution of higher education that houses an accredited physical therapy program (or candidate for accreditation).

The residency is a term of 18-24 months, depending on academic apponitment (9 vs. 12 months) The didactic component covers 4 semesters of coursework while concurrently gaining experience and mentorship from the affiliate host insitution. The resident will participate in all areas of faculty responsiblities including teaching, scholarship, service, and governance/administration.

Upon completion of the residency, ideally the resident moves into a full-time appointment with the host program. They would also continue their professional development towards a terminal academic doctorate (most courses from the residency transfer to a PhD program).

For more information and to express interest in hosting a faculty resident, please contact Joel Tenbrink, PT, PhD, ATC at joel.tenbrink@rm.edu
