CSM 2010--Niche for New Professionals

Published February 19, 2010 12:56 PM by Brian Ferrie

"Student and New Professional Forum: Key Survival Skills for the New Physical Therapist" on Thursday drew a packed house of enthusiastic young therapists and students. Leslie B. Glickman, PT, PhD, director of post professional programs at the University of Maryland department of physical therapy and rehabilitation science, Baltimore, was the speaker. Dr. Glickman emphasized overcoming generational differences and marveled that by 2020, five different generations could be interacting in the workplace together. These generations include the Traditionalists (Born between 1900 and 1945), Baby Boomers (1946-1964), Generation X (1965-1981), Millenials (1982-2000) and the generation born since 2000 that has yet to reach high-school age. The audience was mostly comprised of Millenials and Dr. Glickman tailored her discussion toward the generally recognized competencies of this generation, inlcuding multitasking, working well in groups, adapting quickly, absorbing information rapidly, driving change and being technologically savvy.
