    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Interprofessional Collaboration

This morning physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech got together at the Health Science Center to discuss what each discipline does and what we can do to help compliment each other when caring for patients. We were all given two Neurology patient cases (traumatic brain injury and cerebrovascular accident) and each discipline (PT, OT, speech) went through discussing what our treatment plan would focus on, the outcome measure we would perform during our exam, a few interventions we would perform, discipline goals, as well as interprofessional goals. We did this for both cases and had some very in-depth and thought provoking conversation.

It was a very neat experience for us to team up with other disciplines for class. Although we see OT in the Health Science Center everyday, we very rarely work in conjunction with them. In addition, we also have never had the opportunity to work with the speech students from UMD and today made for a great learning experience and a new perspective/appreciation for what speech language pathologists do to care for patients.

It is always great to have class different from the norm of lecture and note-taking. This experience was hands-on and gave all of us the opportunity to work on our interprofessional communication and problem solving skills that will be essential once we are out in the working world!
