  • To My Younger Self

    I had the chance to see a lot of my family this weekend at a wedding, which included hearing several of my younger cousins talk about touring and applying for college. At one point, my uncle asked me if I would have chosen a different school in hindsight. I turn 30 next month and am now realizing that I have the years and experience required to ...

  • Healthcare Economics 101

    Would you invest in the company you work for? How about an ''Improshare'' where the savings between hours worked and production are shared between the company and the worker? Can you ''feel'' the viability of your company and are they open enough to allow workers to see their bottom line? It can be difficult when you read that a company you work ...

  • Evidence-Based... Astrology?

    For the past 5 years, I've spent a fair amount of time talking to people about the reality of the National Health Service (NHS) in England. That it is actually a very good service and an organization I'm rather proud to work within. I've worked hard to convince friends, family, and readers back in the USA that every horrible thing they've heard ...

  • When Real Life Happens During PT School

    For the past 2 months, I've been lucky to encounter no real obstacles in my education. I've been able to be completely absorbed in school, studying and getting to know my classmates. My resiliency was put to the test this week when I went to the dentist with a toothache on Monday. The ache was moderate and intermittent but I wanted to get it ...

  • Rusty Anatomy

    Last week my 10-year-old daughter pointed to her leg and asked ''What's this bone called, Mom?'' Specifically, she was pointing to a bony prominence on the lateral aspect of her lower leg and wondering why her friend had a ''bigger bump'' than herself. I quickly responded ''Well, that's your...'' and in that moment I realized two facts: I could ...

  • Working from Home

    I went on a tour of a physical therapy facility recently. When documentation was discussed, the facility supervisor happily explained their new electronic documentation system and the ability to log in remotely and complete notes from home or any other location. My ears perked up. Documentation anywhere! Oh, the possibilities! But, as I thought ...

  • 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 ...

  • SPT Test-Taking Skills

    One of my biggest strengths in PT school thus far has been my test-taking skills. Due to the extremely accelerated summer semester, there is simply no way to study everything to the extent you can in undergraduate studies. This means you can no longer out-study bad test-taking skills. Here are a few lessons I've learned so far: Eliminate answer ...

  • On the Job Training

    I have found there are a few skill sets PTAs might find useful in their careers that are not covered in the PTA program curriculum. The techniques relate mostly to skilled nursing PT, as that's been my setting since I graduated, but can certainly translate to home health or inpatient/acute physical therapy. The first and most often demonstrated ...

  • 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 ...
