About Rehab Learning Center
Who we are, our philosophy and mission
Rehab Learning Center is a family of healthcare providers and patients dedicated to making a lasting difference. We have been in the healthcare environment as clinicians for over 25 years. Currently, we are experiencing 8 nerve-wracking years in this environment as patients. This experience continues to shake us to our core. We have dedicated who we are to improve this. Therefore, our philosophy, mission and purpose at Rehab Learning Center is to educate, empower, motivate and challenge ourselves and our colleagues to be the best healthcare professionals that we can possibly be.
Our ongoing 8-year patient experience has educated us more than any amount of clinical experience we could combine. As we continue to learn and reflect on our best and worst experiences in the current healthcare environment, we will never forget the exceptional clinicians we encountered. The less than exceptional clinical care we received will also not be forgotten. It is our philosophy that this is inadequate, and we want to help change this for other patients. This philosophy drives our mission.
Therefore, we have dedicated our platform to constant learning and improvement. We believe in the quote by Abigail Adams “Learning is not attained by chance. It must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”
Our founder, Mike Reiman, PT, DPT, PhD is the embodiment of diligence. He considers himself a constantly challenged, life-long learner. He recently achieved his PhD after several years of clinical practice and academic teaching. Others seem to have been impressed by this feat. Mike sees this as just another step to self-improvement. He wants to share his passion and have Rehab Learning Center help you be the best that you can be.
Our experience as patients, faculty, clinicians and researchers provide the richest educational environment. Collaboration amongst all learning stakeholders provides the best possible outcome.
Join us for an interactive, challenging and rewarding experience that embodies Benjamin Franklin’s quote “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Our approach is not simply to “teach” you. Rather, we believe in an active learning approach. In our live and online courses, you have no choice but to interact and be involved. We expect it.
