Financial Aid

Monday, April 15th, 2019

A good reason to love St. Scholastica is the financial packages they offer. As an international student (or in other words, someone who is foreign to the idea of having to pay astronomical sums of money for your education), financial aid is a significant consideration when deciding where to go to college. In this aspect, Scholastica excels. Not only are the benedictine scholarships they offer upon admission generous–there are also many smaller grants to which you can apply as an undergraduate throughout your years in the college. For instance, the Ryan Rothstein Scholarship is aimed at students experiencing financial hardship, while the Sister Ann Edward Scanlon Memorial Scholarship provides funding to academically strong students (also experiencing some degree of financial struggle) who best uphold the love of learning Sister Ann Edward Scanlon exemplified throughout her life. In all, the many financial opportunities offered ┬áby St. Scholastica are pretty representative of the hospitality and stewardship it tries to inculcate in its students!

DPT Internship Dry Needling

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Dry needling has become one of the tools utilized by physical therapists all throughout the world. One of the ways dry needling is used is in addition to electrical stimulation. Below is a photo of one of the physical therapists at my clinical internship site, Viverant in Vadnais Heights, MN, practicing his dry needling with e-stim skills. I am personally thinking about getting certified in dry needling after I earn my doctorate in physical therapy. Learning continues long after graduation with new skills and techniques – a fundamental value that CSS instills in you while attending CSS – the Love of Learning.

DPT: Amputees and Prosthetics

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

We recently finished up our Amputation and Prosthetic Unit in the Musculoskeletal and Evaluation Management class. This is a spring 2nd year course within the College of St. Scholastica’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy program. We were fortunate enough to have a few Certified Prosthetists and Pedorthists from Northern Orthotic and Prosthetic Center in Duluth, MN come to our class to help us out with this unit. They also brought along a few of their clients to give us the opportunity to hear their stories of how they became amputees. These clients also demo’d their prosthetics, allowed us to be hands on with their residual limbs, and provided us with a fantastic learning opportunity.

Pediatric Orthotics Lab

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

In the doctorate of physical therapy program we are constantly engaged in our love of learning. Recently in my Lifespan of Pediatrics course we discussed pediatric orthotics. We were fortunate enough to have a guest speaker come in who also brought common orthotics seen in the pediatric population. This was a great opportunity for us, as students, to get familiar with the equipment, common diagnoses, and problem solve some case examples where we decided what orthotic would be most appropriate for the case patient.
