Since today is the halfway point in 2013, I decided to take a look into who’s visited my blog in the past 6 months. According to Google Analytics, since December 20 (when I started keep track), 841 people have visited my blog 1367 times. But what’s really cool is that people have visited my blog… Continue reading 35 Countries – Blog Visitors in 2013
If you’re still in college, I’d recommend taking more writing classes. Practicing writing and getting feedback will help you improve. It’s also important to read a lot. Read books, read the newspaper, and read other people’s personal statements to get an idea of how they’re written. But in my opinion one of the best ways… Continue reading I was wondering about how one can become a better writer? Especially when it comes to writing in the GRE and personal statement.
No! I’m sure you remember more than you think you do. You don’t need to remember every single detail and you’re professors will probably do a little refresher of the essentials. And it’s always easier to relearn something than to learn it for the first time.
Thanks, I love getting feedback on the blog! I have lots of posts with advice, including one about getting through first semester and one about the PT School application. You can also find more posts giving advice in my archive here: http://pt2b15.tumblr.com/archive Also, I hope you saw the post I wrote about why physics is… Continue reading Hi! I’m currently applying to a few DPT programs. Do you have any advice on getting accepted? Also, do you have any advice to being successful in a DPT program? Thanks for following me!
A common complaint I’ve heard from pre-PT students is the amount of pre-requisite courses that are required for admission. Although they vary slightly from school to school, they tend to include a year each of anatomy, chemistry and physics, as well as some humanities and writing classes. While the anatomy requirement seems obvious, some of… Continue reading Why PT School Has So Many Pre-Req’s
Great post from a fellow PT tumblr about the job search as a recent grad!
That’s annoying that they lead you on like that. Between you and your classmates, is it difficult to find a job as a new grad?
I should say that I haven’t been looking for jobs as hard as I could, what with illness and studying…
Fear of Failure: Physical Therapy Jobs for New Grads
This week I filled out a list of the top 10 places I want to do my first Clinical Education Internship in November. The realization that it’s just around the corner is thrilling. Of course I’ll be excited to be on a work schedule with no homework at night, but I’m even more excited to… Continue reading Ready to Intern in November
Great update on how the Boston Marathon terror attack survivors are doing in Physical Therapy:
PT Update on Boston Marathon Attack Survivors
As a group, doctors dislike ambiguity. We pride ourselves in the scientific girders of modern medicine and are most comfortable when we are dispensing medical care to our patients that comes from a double-blind clinical trial, that fits into a validated clinical-prediction rule. But very little of medicine falls into that absolute category.
As we take classes on Evidence Based Practice and do our own research, I’m often struck by how little (quality) evidence is out there for many physical therapy treatments. It turns out this is true in medicine also, as the medical writer Danielle Ofri points out.
Lack of Evidence
Today in modalities class we had a guest lecture on Dry Needling. It is similar to acupuncture, but based on physical therapy knowledge and can be used by PT’s in certain states alongside more traditional PT techniques. At the end of class we were given a brief lesson in how to Dry Needle and allowed… Continue reading
