What I Wish I Had Learned in PT School!

We spend countless hours in PT school learning clinical skills and how to reason through the clinical decision-making process. Yes, those skills are important…however, while foundational, they are not the most important! There’s so much more that we should teaching young, impressionable students in PT school to help them achieve the practice of their dream and better define what true success looks like. In particular, we will review a few “contrarian truths” that we often assume to be true in physical therapy, yet when examined under a microscope and after years of anecdotal experience, we actually find not to be the case. Come join us for a lively and thought provoking discussion from me to you. It’s purely opinion, so use with caution!

He completed his PhD in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Pittsburgh.
