PROVO, Utah, Dec. 07, 2018 – Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions (RMUoHP) celebrated 86 doctoral degree candidates of various healthcare specialties during its Friday commencement ceremonies.
Dr. Richard P. Nielsen PT, DHSc, ECS, founding president of RMUoHP, began the proceedings by addressing the students, “John Wesley said, ‘Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can [sic].’ That’s your charge, that’s your responsibility; to go forth and to do good, to build, to serve and to heal”
The graduating class receive their advanced degrees during the 20th Anniversary year of Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. Since its founding in 1998, there have been approximately 2,600 graduates in advanced healthcare specialties.
During his commencement speech, Dr. Michael Skurja, Jr., PT, DPT, ECS, co-founder and executive vice president of operations and director of continuing education, said, “I want to share with you three lessons I’ve learned over the years. First, be persistent. You will continue to face challenges. Second, develop communications skills. Communication between you and your patient is crucial. Take the time to listen and communicate clearly with them. Continue to be objective, don’t dwell on the past, seek wise counsel and persevere. Third, be respectful. You will be facing situations where you will be working with colleagues who have years of experience but who do not have a doctoral degree. They may recognize the ‘Dr.’ in front of your name or the initials behind, but that doesn’t mean they are automatically going to respect you. You have to earn their respect.”
“Treat your patients as individuals. Remember, integrity and your character are important. You should go the extra mile when necessary. Always practice evidence-based medicine. Avoid treatment fads. Read the literature and stay current.”
RMUoHP estimates that graduates currently treat tens-of-thousands of patients throughout the country every day, and over the course of their cumulative careers, will serve millions of people.

The Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions Foundation clinic provides pro-bono physical therapy rehab services for under-resourced residents
PROVO, Utah, Nov. 12, 2018 – The Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions (RMUoHP) Community Rehabilitation Clinic received a $125,000 donation from The Kahlert Foundation to help fund the operations of the pro-bono rehabilitation clinic, which provides free care to the underserved and underinsured citizens of Utah County.
“This donation helps eliminate limitations of our ability to help people,” said Dr. Coleby Clawson, PT, DPT, director of Community Rehabilitation Clinic and assistant faculty member of the RMUoHP Doctor of Physical Therapy program. “It allows us to bring in more therapists, more administrative help, and much needed equipment to help more people. It also allows us to extend our hours of operation to help people who are working to improve their lives and to reintegrate back into society.”
The donation was the second made to the clinic by The Kahlert Foundation in two years and was presented this week to Clawson and other clinic and RMUoHP staff and executives by Heather Kahlert, vice president of The Kahlert Foundation.
“Healthcare has always been an important part of the mission of our family’s foundation,” said Kahlert. “The RMUoHP Community Rehabilitation Clinic serves the disadvantaged community of Utah County. It helps people who have had surgeries and other medical procedures receive the physical therapy they need to complete their rehabilitation, so they feel better, and so they can return to their lives, families and jobs. We are pleased to support this clinic and feel it is a model for others to follow in helping people with rehabilitation needs.”
The Community Rehabilitation Clinic (CRC) is the first of its kind in Utah County. It serves the uninsured and underserved citizens who need physical therapy rehabilitation. Most patients return to levels of normalcy, secure or continue employment and carry on productive and healthy lives and daily activity.
The CRC has a highly trained and skilled staff of licensed, qualified physical therapists and physical therapy assistants as well as Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students and faculty from RMUoHP, physical therapist volunteers from the community, and pre-physical therapy students from Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University.
The Kahlert Foundation provides grants to non-profit organizations to improve the quality of life and well-being of the community in the areas of health care, youth programs, education, veteran organizations, and human services.
“We are grateful for the support from The Kahlert Foundation and other donors who help fund and operate the CRC,” said Dr. Richard P. Nielsen, founding president of Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions who regularly works in the clinic seeing patients in his specialty area of clinical electrophysiology. “Together we can help many people each year receive the physical therapy services they need to heal, improve their health and live active lives.”
RMUoHP also operates the Center for Communication Disorders – a second pro-bono clinic for the disadvantaged residents of Utah County providing speech-language pathology assessment and intervention for community members of all ages.

PROVO, Utah, Oct. 9, 2018 – Following an extensive and productive process working with the Provo Mayor’s office, Provo Municipal Council and other involved parties to approve and obtain the location for the proposed Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine (NCOM), Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi signed a title transfer to the developer for Wasatch Educational to acquire the property.
The proposed medical school site location is on approximately 21 acres of the northwestern portion of the East Bay Golf Course, which was approved as surplus property by the Provo Municipal Council in January. An additional 7.8-acre contiguous parcel was purchased by the developer from a private source to expand the site location.
Under the agreement, the developers of the proposed medical education campus, which will include the proposed NCOM campus as well as the relocated Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions campus, will fund relocation costs of three current golf holes to the southeastern portion of the course. These new holes will be designed, relocated and playable before construction on the proposed medical education campus begins possibly by the end of 2018.
“This is an exciting time for Provo,” said Dr. John J. Dougherty, founding Dean and Chief Academic Officer of NCOM. “We are grateful for the work of Mayor Kaufusi, the Provo Municipal Council and City Administration to make this all come together for the benefit of the people of Provo and Utah. This planned medical education campus will give the students the opportunity to pursue whatever specialty they choose in medicine helping to address the growing medical shortages throughout the state.”
“Provo is a college town through and through,” said Kaufusi. “Education is at the heart of what we're all about here. So, I'm very excited about the addition of a proposed medical school here in Provo.”
One of the critical goals of the proposed medical school is to recruit, train, and retain students in Utah. “Our plan is to have no less than 50 percent of our enrolled students from or with ties to Utah,” said Dougherty.
Along with other medical schools in Utah, the proposed NCOM would supply doctors to help offset a growing physician shortage. Research from the Utah Medical Association Council estimates that Utah will need approximately 375 new physicians each year to meet increasing access to healthcare needs. In 2015, the American Medical Association ranked Utah 49th in primary care physicians to population ratio and 43rd in overall physicians to population ratios.
Named after the Ray and Tye Noorda Foundation, who funded a significant portion of the money for the project, the proposed Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine is positioned to be a premier, world-class medical education and research institution. The proposed curriculum will be a new hybrid based on some of the most innovative and progressive medical education programs in North America designed to prepare physicians to provide high-quality healthcare with a focus on wellness.
The Noorda financial commitment, along with a significant funding commitment from the developer, provides the majority of the funds needed for construction and operation of the proposed Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine.
“The proposed NCOM will not cost the taxpayers a penny and may make a large economic impact to the county each year,” said Dougherty.
According to a recent independent economic impact study by Bonneville Research, the proposed Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine could potentially provide more than $62 million in the construction business, 236 construction-related jobs and bring more than 121 institution-related employment positions to the county. It may attract other health, medical, biomedical, biotechnology, retail, and related spin-off businesses.
In a later phase, a new Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions campus will be built adjacent to the proposed medical institution. At full operation, the local economic impact of the combined schools could be approximately $100 million annually and could include 1,500 jobs with more than $83 million in the construction business. All of this may increase the property tax base including an estimated $8 million directed to the Provo School District in the first 15 years.
The development plans include significant green space in and around the proposed medical education campus, creating a park-like atmosphere to protect and preserve the environment, nature, wildlife, and birdlife.
“Preserving the natural beauty and environment of the existing East Bay Golf Course and that wildlife and birdlife is undisturbed is one of our highest priorities,” said Dougherty. “We intend to have lots of green space, walking trails, biking trails, and preserving the existing golf course waterways as we design the proposed medical education campus.”
About the proposed Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine
The proposed Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine would be an independent and freestanding institution overseen by a governing board located in Provo, Utah.
Founded and located in Provo, Utah in June 1998, Wasatch Educational will manage the development of the proposed Noorda College of Osteopathic Medicine. www.wasatcheducational.com. Wasatch Educational is the holding company of Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. The mission of Wasatch Educational is to promote and develop healthcare education institutions.
