  • A Scary Semester

    While I'm happy to report that I finished my first semester with great grades and learned an enormous amount of information, I have to admit that I'm terrified for the semester that begins tomorrow. This time around, our classes include Medical Pathology/Pharmacology (combination course), Kinesiology and Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Clinical ...

  • Reflections on My First Semester in PT School

    Today marks my last lecture of my first semester in PT school. I've completed gross anatomy, physiology, clinical anatomy and introduction to physical therapy. I cannot believe how much I have learned and, more importantly, retained! I can't wait to see what the next semester brings. Here are some lessons from this summer that have stuck with me ...

  • Coping Mechanisms for PT School

    My course load in the first semester includes Physiology, Anatomy, Clinical Anatomy for Physical Therapists, and Introduction to Physical Therapy. Luckily, we didn't have to cover all of these last week as our first four days were primarily orientation. The only course we have actually attended is Intro to PT, but I've somehow managed to become ...

  • A Blog of Olympic Proportion

    Have you all seen what has been going on in Russia the last few weeks? No, not all that business with the Ukraine and Crimea (although honestly when was the last time one country just up and annexed part of another country? Seriously, it's been a while!). But I'm talking about the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia. After all the pomp and ...

  • Do You Have the Right Stuff?

    I've written before about the obesity epidemic in this country and the potential impact PTs can have in perhaps helping turn the tide in this seemingly endless battle. But when dealing with obesity, prevention isn't everything. As PTs, we are tasked every day with treating patients who are already overweight or obese, and it falls on us to ensure ...

  • Hum-PT-y Dum-PT-y Sat on a Wall

    Editor's Note: Throughout the month of February, ADVANCE bloggers Michael Kelley and Lisa Mueller will post ''Dueling Blogs,'' in which they argue opposing sides of the same issue. Topic #4 -- ''What Is the Biggest Challenge to the PT Profession?'') When you have a fever, you go see the doctor. When you have a toothache, you go see the ...

  • The Gold Medal of PT Settings

    (Editor's Note: Throughout the month of February, ADVANCE bloggers Michael Kelley and Lisa Mueller will post ''Dueling Blogs,'' in which they argue opposing sides of the same issue. Topic #3 -- ''Does the Inpatient or Outpatient Setting Allow Greater PT Practice?'') Over the past couple of years, I've started to see a clear dichotomy of ...

  • Outpatient PT -- A Different World

    So like all PT students, I did one of my clinical rotations at an outpatient clinic. Mine was 10 weeks in a private practice clinic down in North Carolina. My CI was great and I did learn a lot, but really, that was the extent of my outpatient experience. Even as a student, I knew the outpatient setting wasn't where I wanted to start my PT career. ...

  • PT Students Working Holidays

    It's the age-old question for PT students on rotation around the holidays -- will I be expected to work? There's inevitably that awkward point when the issue finally surfaces and you find yourself trying to test the waters mid-conversation. Someone brings up Thanksgiving, which spins into the winter holidays, and all of a sudden you're in a panic ...

  • The Great Weight Debate

    I'm going to take a stab this week at a rather touchy subject. If you haven't already figured it out, one of my passions in life is being active. I'm not some sort of gym-rat or anything like that, but I try to eat healthy and work out regularly. I was also blessed with some pretty good genes when it comes to weight (lots of skinny Irish-folk in ...
