  • Blatant Rudeness

    Usually when I go on a teaching trip, I have wonderful students. For the most part they pay attention. I get good questions. Some have fallen asleep because they drove three hours to get there. Others are obviously there for the CEUs. Last week I had someone who disrupted the class. I encourage questions and discussion with attendees. This time ...

  • Saying Goodbye

    I completed my final day of clinical... ever. I'll never have to sign ''SPT'' again. I won't need to have notes cosigned. And I will never, ever fill out a self-assessment of clinical skills again. I feel like I suddenly grew up, got kicked out of the house, and all I'm really waiting for is a small piece of paper to tell me that I'm on my own. ...

  • The Importance of Mentorship

    Although having only been a PTA for three years, I've found myself in conversations with many potential future SPTA candidates. Quite a few have been with bright and hardworking CNAs who I work with in skilled nursing and others have been with folks my age or older (that would be the 40+ set if you were wondering) looking into PTA as a second or ...

  • The PT Student Summit

    Over the past few months we've had a couple PT students come and go. Most of them were somewhere in the middle of their clinical education and had no idea what they wanted to do with their PT degree upon graduation. As I watched the various CIs and students interact with patients, families, other medical staff and each other, I found that from my ...

  • Is 'ASPT' the Answer?

    ‘ASPT' should be the new designation for PTAs who have an associate's degree in physical therapy. The PTAs who have successfully challenged the testing and don't have a degree as a PTA should not be allowed to use this. These new letters will denote we have an associate's degree in physical therapy and will practice and be licensed as a physical ...

  • Dosage Matters

    There were two common themes at CSM this year: dosage and intensity. Every clinical presentation I attended mentioned one or the other. Intensity was defined as how hard the patient is working. Dosage referred to the number or reps or duration in the case of a static activity. In both cases, more is considered better. Last weekend I worked at a ...

  • I Passed the Boards!

    I finally received word on Friday that I passed the boards. The West Virginia Board of Physical Therapy sent me a letter, snail-mail style, to inform me that I can sleep soundly and stop worrying. A word of wisdom for anyone preparing to take the exam -- while I very much appreciated West Virginia permitting students to take the boards early, it ...
