As our name implies, our campus is in the Rocky Mountains! RMUoHP is nestled in Utah Valley, almost at the foot of a mountain; nature Is our backyard. There are many outdoor recreational opportunities close by, whether within a few minutes’ or a few hours’ drive, such as hiking, biking, rock climbing, fishing, river rafting, camping, and star gazing. Utah is home to seven national parks, over 120 lakes, including six reservoirs within one hour’s drive. Red Rock country is just a few hours drive away: Arches, Zions, Goblin Valley, Bryce Canyon, etc. Utah is famous for its world-class skiing and winter sports. Our campus is only 20 minutes away from Sundance, and an hour away from Park City, host to the 2002 Winter Olympics. With 14 ski resorts, 12 of which are located in Northern Utah, you can enjoy outdoor activities year-round.
Onsite Pro Bono Clinic
Our onsite pro-bono clinic (Center for Communication Disorders) is designed to serve those who cannot afford speech-language or communication disorders treatment or those who have exceeded the limits of their
insurance allotment. We know there are people in our community that are in need of care, and we help
provide Utah County with the treatment and specialized care that they need. Our students, working alongside and learning from faculty, have opportunities early in their program to be involved in the clinic and to meet with patients.
This program prepares graduates as Medical Speech-Language Pathologists to work in settings such as hospitals, clinics, and acute care rehab facilities. Our students are prepared to work in medical settings and to assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent oral motor, swallowing, cognitive-linguistic, speech, and language disorders.
Nationwide Externship Opportunities
Students will have the opportunity to complete their externship in various locations nationwide. These settings
will include, but are not limited to, clinics, hospitals, schools, nursing facilities, rehab centers, etc.
Opportunity for international service in Africa
Each year, during the summer semester break, students can opt to travel to Africa with faculty,
and students of other programs as part of a voluntary service-learning course focusing on humanitarian
efforts. In addition to building and supplying village schools with learning tools, students will be introduced to
third-world clinical experiences and will spend time both in the clinics/hospitals as well as the local village.
Easy transition into RMUoHP’s Doctor of Speech Language Pathology program
Our Doctor of Speech-Language Pathology degree is for SLPs who want to advance their clinical knowledge,
skills, and marketability so they can further their career opportunities in the field and better serve their
patients with communication and swallowing disorders. The SLPD program is mostly online, so students can continue their full-time work with patients in their communities without relocating.
