    I graduated from CSS in 2014 with a B.A. in psychology with a biology minor and completed the M.S. EXP program at CSS in 2015. I am now a 2nd year physical therapy student at CSS and I'm loving it! I chose St. Scholastica based on the welcoming environment. I played softball at CSS during my four years of undergraduate studies. I am now the Captain of the CSS Love Your Melon Crew and a PT club rep. I enjoy the company of my friends, being outside, playing volleyball, relaxing and my cat Mittens!

2nd Year Research

Throughout our second year of PT school we plan and carry out research in small groups with a faculty advisor. Our faculty advisor was Dr. John Borstad and our research that we conducted was exploratory research on the mechanism of the shoulder, more specifically the shoulder capsule and its sensitivity. Different advisors have different topics they like to research. For example, both of Dr. Borstad groups look at the shoulder, Dr. Ogston groups looked at running, etc.

How groups were decided:

  • Advisors come and present their different topics
  • We rank our interest of the different topics
  • They put us into groups
  • The our groups chose which of the two Dr. Borstad groups we wanted to be in

My research partners: Meghan, Jesse, and James!

It was A LOT of work and to be honest, it often felt rushed and like we didn’t know what we were doing… but in the long run, it was a great learning experience! It was great practice for when or if we do research later in our careers.

After this experience, groups can have the opportunity to submit their poster for different conferences   (like CSM: the big conference I posted about a while back!) and then they would be able to present their poster to conference goers!
