  • Benefits of PT Student Involvement

    This week I was awarded a grant to attend the National Student Conclave. The grant covers airfare, hotel and registration to the conference. Of course, I was very happy to receive the grant but was also eager to share with my peers the benefits of being involved. The grant was through my university and any student, from any program, wanting to ...

  • Anne Frank's House

    One of the great benefits of living in England is that the rest of Europe is very close by. I got to enjoy a mini-break in Amsterdam this weekend while my partner gave a speech for his work. The last time I was in Amsterdam was on Yom Kippur, the one day of the year the Anne Frank house is closed. I was not missing it this time! It was an ...

  • My First Physical Therapy Conference

    Over the weekend, I attended the Florida Physical Therapy Association's Annual Conference in Orlando, FL. The conference ran from September 11-14, and it was a great few days. I attended an interactive ''Speed Dating'' session where we got six 15-minute Q & A's with various PTs on different topics like Practice and Advocacy, the Chapter ...

  • Maintaining Relationships in PT School

    Today, I heard from an old friend and realized that I'm having a hard time keeping up with relationships outside of school. Last week, I got home at 8 p.m. or later every night, even on Sunday because we had a fundraiser event! In sum, I'm on campus at least 50 hours a week. It can be so consuming that we often refer to our non-PT friends as the ...

  • Running for Class Office

    Before the semester ended, I was elected president of my class. I ran unopposed so it wasn't a stressful or lengthy process; however, I've already been thrown a ton of tasks and responsibilities to juggle, as have my fellow officers. Is all the extra work worth it?Of course, I can't say for sure but from speaking to upperclassmen and officers in ...

  • Public Speaking

    This week, I'll be giving a presentation to half of our company about a recent continuous improvement project I've worked on. We are just weeks away from our project being implemented, and many of my coworkers who haven't been involved in the project don't know what to expect (rightfully so -- their focus is patient care!). I've been involved in ...

  • Interstate Practice

    One of the things that surprised me when I first moved to the United Kingdom was that my registration (equivalent to licensing) was valid not only in England, but also in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. If I suddenly got an offer in Edinburgh or Cardiff, I could simply accept it and go. No additional paperwork. I've held multiple licenses ...

  • Strategic Meeting

    As part of my leadership program, I attended the Texas Physical Therapy Association (TPTA) strategic planning meeting last weekend. The idea was to get newer and upcoming leaders to meet and mingle with people in leadership positions. We also got insight into how decisions are made and what is on tap for us in the future. I loved it. I chose to ...

  • Continuing Education Courses

    A few years ago, I had the opportunity to teach a continuing education course on early mobility with three other physical therapists. We met for several weeks, reviewing the content along with the training and presentation materials. It took a lot of thought and effort to review every detail of the course to make sure it flowed well and the ...

  • My Latest Continuing Education Course

    Last month I went to an onsite CEU course. Back in the day, I was a CEU junkie. I'd go not just for CEUs but if the topic sounded interesting. More recently I've had to cut back and limit myself to CSM. This year I got burned by the stroke course at CSM. Needless to say, I was a little nervous about this one. The topic was motor learning. It was ...
