Community of Graduates

Rocky Mountain University’s Graduate Ambassadors are here to create a vibrant and supportive community for prospective graduate students.

Here at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions, our highest goal is to support healthcare professionals in elevating their careers. We feel one of the most effective ways to do that is to create a community of graduates that can stand hand-in-hand with prospective students as they develop an outcome-oriented experience.
