Internship Happenings

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

After tomorrow I will be three weeks into my final terminal internship for the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the College of St. Scholastica. I am currently at Orthopedic & Spine Therapy in Poplar, WI. The first three weeks have gone really well and I am enjoying each day getting more experience with hands on treatments. I am also learning a lot thanks to some set aside time for one on one skill practice with my clinical instructors.

Another one of the many topics we cover in PT School is wheelchairs, how to operate them, how to fit them, and how to educate our patients on their wheelchairs.


2nd Year Research

Friday, July 21st, 2017

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.
