  • 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 ...

  • The 18-Year-Old PTA

    During the first week of PTA school, our director announced that the median age of the class was 33.5 years old. We students, spanning from age 20-55, had come from all walks of life. I remember a few fellow classmates had just received BS degrees from 4-year colleges and others were entering physical therapy as a fourth or fifth job incarnation. ...

  • 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 ...

  • The Finish Line

    Whenever I stand at the starting line of a race, I always think about one thing: the uncrossed finish line waiting for me at the end. And as with any race I have competed in, this blog too has reached its finish line. In my very first ADVANCE blog post I wrote, ''My hope is that this blog serves not just as a place for me to express my thoughts ...

  • 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 ...

  • White Coat Ceremony

    A few weeks ago, our class had its White Coat Ceremony. The ceremony began with speeches about the symbolism of the white coat and what it meant to wear one. Then, similar to a graduation, we each crossed the stage and our PT2 mentors helped us put on our coats. To close, we watched slideshows of the classes before us and saw those classes receive ...
