Tiffany Bohm, D.P.T

Bohm received both her Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Master of Physical Therapy degrees from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO.  Her transitional Doctor of

Physical Therapy degree was completed through Simmons College in Boston, MA.  She has also received certification as an Assistive Technology Specialist through Oklahoma State University.

Upon her arrival on campus, the PTA program had a national examination pass rate of less than 70%.  Under her leadership, the dedicated faculty have transformed the PTA program at KCKCC which now boasts a 100% first-time pass rate for the past nine graduating classes.  When the PTA program sought reaffirmation of accreditation in 2013, Dr. Bohm successfully lead her team through the self-study and on-site review process resulting in a “clean” report with a rare commendation for their thorough and professional completion of the process.  In addition to her duties as administrator of the program, she taught a full course load of Neuromuscular Rehabilitation, Pathophysiology for Rehabilitation, and NPTE Review and Preparation. 

Dr. Bohm is actively engaged in bettering the profession and PTA education.  She recently completed a three year commitment on the Nominating Committee and the Board of Directors of the Kansas Physical Therapy Association.  Over the past six years, she has been a frequent presenter at KPTA conferences and the APTA Combined Sections Meeting on various topics pertinent to the PTA and PTA education.  She authored two chapters for TherapyEd’s National Review and Study Guide for the Physical Therapist Assistant in the areas of neuromuscular rehabilitation and pediatrics and is now one of the instructors teaching the review courses for this company.  In 2010, she joined the cadre of on-site reviewers serving as a team leader for CAPTE on-site visits and as a candidacy reviewer for the accreditation process. 

At KCKCC, Dr. Bohm has served on a variety of committees from Faculty Senate to the Academic Policies Committee.  She is well respected as a campus leader in assessment and curriculum development and recently led her PTA team as a pilot program in the college’s new assessment efforts.  She was frequently called on to review self-study reports for other programs in the Nursing and Allied Health division during their accreditation processes.  She recently completed a tenure as team leader for a workgroup during KCKCC’s last Higher Learning Commission reaffirmation process.  For the past academic year, she guided a workgroup of faculty charged with reviewing the general education requirements for students seeking one of 23 Associate of Applied Science degrees offered at the college. 

Prior to joining the KCKCC faculty, Dr. Bohm worked as a pediatric therapist in the public school setting and provided outpatient pediatric therapy through her own company.  Since beginning her teaching career, she has continued to practice as available in a variety of settings including LTAC, SNF, outpatient, and psychiatrics.
