I know that customer service and working with a patient are different but it has taught be to be patient with those who cause complications. When it comes to physical fitness I have been a dancer for 11 years which has caused me to become fit and would be especially helpful in demonstrating exercises such as flexibility exercises. Outside of those qualities I enjoy helping those who are unable to help themselves and working in the physical therapy field would allow me to express my joy of helping others to become physically enabled.
While obtaining my observation hours, I had the opportunity to further my education on the field of physical therapy. This was done by observing the daily tasks of my supervisor as well as the other physical therapists and staff in the clinic.

I also observed how he would attentively listen to each of his patients throughout every therapy session. Not only did this inform him of his patient’s current and ongoing symptoms, but also their desired end result from therapy.
