Full Circle. Classroom to Clinic!!
In the past month my career as a DPT student has gone full circle. I finished my last semester of my 1st year of classes, spent two weeks in the clinic, and have started the first week of classes of my 2nd year! I will spare you the details of studying for finals and skip right to the good stuff, clinicals! I was placed at an outpatient clinical site in Toledo, OH. As I walked into the clinic on my first day I made sure my name tag was on, my shirt tucked in, and that I was wearing a smile to secretly mask the bullets I was sweating. Within a few short hours of my first day I was able to practice what I had been learning the past year. I was interacting with patients, taking histories, performing manual muscle testing, measuring range of motion, and having fun! The past year had seemed to have flown by and I am proud to announce that the DPT class of 2015 is one year closer to graduation! We will ALL stick together from the classroom to the clinic!
