About Rehab Essentials

Rehab Essentials was started in 2005 to enable actively-practicing Physical Therapists to advance to the doctoral level. Steven Tepper, PT, PhD, FAPTA, realized the need for a cost-effective transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program that allowed physical therapists to maintain their work-life balance, continue to practice and advance their professional qualifications by taking online courses to achieve their DPT. Rehab Essentials brought content experts together to create an all-star faculty and outstanding curriculum. Since its inception, Rehab Essentials has expanded and partnered with accredited institutions to improve, expand, and elevate educational opportunities for practicing therapists and students.
