    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.

Interventions TA

In addition to my last post pertaining to the my fall semester 2nd year DPT courses, I will also be a Teacher’s Assistant (TA) this year for Interventions I and II (first year courses). The course description entails…

Interventions I PTH 6530: First of a two-course sequence designed to develop skilled application of interventions in the physical therapy management of patients. Students apply evaluation, diagnostic, and prognostic information to develop a plan of care for specific joint or regional applications of procedural interventions pertaining to electrotherapy, physical agents, and mechanical modalities. Competency in the application of interventions includes appropriate modification of the intervention plan based on monitoring patient response and individual patient needs and characteristics.

As a TA I assist in scheduling lab hours and competencies to assure that the first year students understand the material and have time to practice the skills necessary to be successful in the class and in clinic. With that being said myself and the other TA’s developed a schedule for lab hours and competency checks for the month of September. The schedule allows for students to have ample amount of time to come in, ask questions, practice, and review the material/skills they’ve been learning about in class.

As a graduate student these open lab times are essential for success in the course. If you are an undergraduate student, courses like Biology, Chemistry, and Physics also have TA’s that are there to aid you in your learning experience. Don’t be shy to reach out to your class TA for assistance throughout the semester – this is what we are here for!

Best of luck as everyone finishes up their first week of fall semester classes!
