PT, OT, & AT Poster Symposium

Friday, April 28th, 2017

This past Tuesday the┬áCollege of St. Scholastica’s Physical and Occupational Therapy and Athletic Training programs’ graduate students presented their original Research and Critical Reviews on a variety of topics relevant to all practice settings. It was a wonderful opportunity to share with the public the projects we have been working on for over a year.


Power Outage

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Last Thursday, myself and the rest of my physical therapy class and faculty, as well as the occupational students and faculty came to the Health Science Center (HSC) for 8am classes to find that the power was out. There was something going on in the area where all of Woodland Ave. was experiencing power outages. The lights would come on for about a minute and shut off again for about 5-10 minutes. Finally the PT faculty got together and discussed that without steady power, which we rely on for powerpoint presentations and notes for lectures, class would become very frustrating. Not to mention, there was no running water, which could of ended in a smelly disaster. We were told that our 8am class would be cancelled and we were to meet back at the HSC at 11am for our second class of the day. Some students stayed in the building to work on homework, where as others went home and crawled back in bed. It was a nice little mid-late week surprise that nobody was really complaining about, at least not any of the students! Power returned for late morning classes and all has been fine since!


Interprofessional Collaboration

Monday, November 28th, 2016

This morning physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech got together at the Health Science Center to discuss what each discipline does and what we can do to help compliment each other when caring for patients. We were all given two Neurology patient cases (traumatic brain injury and cerebrovascular accident) and each discipline (PT, OT, speech) went through discussing what our treatment plan would focus on, the outcome measure we would perform during our exam, a few interventions we would perform, discipline goals, as well as interprofessional goals. We did this for both cases and had some very in-depth and thought provoking conversation.


Interprofessional Veterans Health Panel

Saturday, November 19th, 2016

Yesterday, as the winter storm was beginning to roll through Duluth, I was sitting in Somer’s Main Lounge on the main campus with 18 of my fellow PT classmates, about 40 nursing students, and a surplus of faculty and staff from the college as well as the previously mentioned programs. We were attending a Veterans panel put on by the faculty of the College of St. Scholastica and our Interprofessional Veteran’s Health class faculty.

Today marks the start of my 2nd year in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at CSS. After one full year of in-class education and an 8-week clinical internship in Fargo, ND, I am back in Duluth ready to begin summer classes in the new Health Science Center.
