    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.

1st Week of Internship Complete

My first week of my first doctorate of physical therapy (DPT) terminal internship is complete. I chose to work “Four 10’s” during this 8 week internship in order to see how I liked that schedule. To be honest, it is exhausting, but rewarding.

I am currently working in an outpatient orthopedic setting called Viverant in Vadnais Heights, MN. My commute is about 10 minutes each morning, which gives me the opportunity to listen to an episode from one of my podcasts relating to PT thus helping me to get m mind right each morning. My hours for work are M and W 6:30am-6pm AND T and Th 8:30-4:30. Mondays and Wednesdays are obviously quite a bit longer, but it makes the Tuesdays and Thursdays feel very short.

I am getting a lot of great clinical experience working with a variety of diagnoses of the upper extremities, spine, and lower extremities. This first week I feel as if I’ve been thrown out into the woods to fend for myself, however I have had the necessary training and education to be successful. My clinical instructors (CI’s) are challenging me to see where I’m at and to help me learn. My first day I completed two initial evaluations and did a few treatment sessions and have just been progressing as the week has gone on. I know this is going to be a great learning opportunity for me and I’m looking forward to the knowledge and experience I will receive over the next 7 weeks!
