  • The SNF Misconception

    Way back in one of the first few quarters of the PTA program, I and many of my fellow classmates would project about what field of physical therapy we could most see ourselves working in. Most of us were on the fence. The general sentiment was work for the experience and then be choosy. Outpatient orthopedic was tempting - performing myofascial ...

  • PTA: The Right Fit for You?

    Having very nearly completed my journey as a SPTA (I just took my licensing exam this week), I've thought hard about the advice I would give to a new PTA student or person thinking about the field of physical therapist assisting. Initially, I would suggest that if someone was looking for an ''easy'' two-year degree that can yield a living wage and ...

  • The "Trouble" Patient

    During my student clinical rotation, I was fortunate enough to experience an inpatient, outpatient and everything in between. The patient population was vast as well. Depending on the clinical, I saw patient age ranges between 13 and 95. It struck me as interesting that the more ''difficult'' patients I met did not fall in any one age group. The ...

  • Biostats, Legal Issues and Continuing Professional Development

    I'm sincerely questioning my sanity this week. That I decided to tackle ''Biostatistics'' and ''Legal and Ethical Issues in Public Health'' in the same semester was nuts enough. One is loaded with calculations and interpretations; the other with reading, more reading, and yet more reading and interpretations. I also decided to tackle the task of ...

  • Self Evaluation

    As the last week of one of my last clinical affiliations comes to a close, I'm stunned at the amount of valuable information I've learned. I have to admit, I was nervous when I found out I would have to master large pieces of Pilates equipment for basic upper-extremity exercises at this outpatient sports clinic I was assigned. Like anything new, I ...

  • Take Five Minutes of Your Day

    I spent a portion of my day fighting to swallow the big emotional lump in my throat and choke back tears as I attended the last of a 2010 lecture series at Bryn Mawr Hospital in suburban Philadelphia. Surrounded by health care workers from every corner of the hospital, I squeezed into the last available seat in a row in front of my father, a ...
