    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.

Physical Therapy 2nd Year Spring Semester Classes

Beginning January 17, I will officially begin my final semester of “in-class” coursework in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program at the College of St. Scholastica. It is a 3-year, 108 credit program, with the last year consisting of three 8-12 week internships. I already completed one 8 week internship in Fargo, ND at Sanford Medical Center and am set up to be in Vadnais Heights, MN at Viverant (July-Sept) and in Phoenix, AZ at Touchstone Rehabilitation (Sept-Nov), and one more unknown location in a rural setting. I am very excited about what is to come, but first I have to get through the spring semester that will include courses such as:

Patient Client Management III – The final series of a course that provides opportunities int he student clinic at CSS or LSC giving us hands on experience working with patients of all sorts of diagnoses and other healthcare providers.

Pediatrics: Course that is geared towards the child and infant physical therapy. There is also an optional Peds 6-week clinic rotation for students interested in working with pediatric patients.

Neuro II: Second part of a neuromuscular focused course that dives into neuro rehab. The focus is on facilitatory and inhibitory techniques to use with stroke, spinal cord injury, and other common neuro diagnoses.

Crinq (critical inquiry) III: Final series of a 3 part course where we will be finishing up our research projects. My research project is focusing on using an in-shoe force measurement system (PEDAR) to measure the variability of in-shoe forces when running on a flat surface, snow covered flat surface, and snow covered trail (uneven) surface.

MSEM – Musculoskeletal Examination and Management II: Second part to a course that focuses on critical thinking and problem solving with musculoskeletal/orthopedic injuries. Here we learn examination techniques and handling skills when working with outpatient clientele.

Administration 2: This course will focus on financial management in the PT working world. It will also focus on some current “hot topics” being discussed and lobbied for by the American Physical Therapy Association.

Professional Behaviors 4: Although we do not meet for this class it contains the making of our professional portfolio that we have been creating since day 1 of the program. It shows our on-going goals and professional development over the course of the program. A great way to track progress and see yourself developing into an entry-level physical therapist.

Good luck to all in their spring semester courses!
