Thank you for the opportunity to work at D1 Therapy and learn from you and the other therapists. I am really grateful for the experience I had with you and everyone else. All of you provided me with valuable skills and lessons that I will take with me to physical therapy school or any profession I may pursue. The compassion that you and the other therapist show for your patients is admirable and something I strive to model. Personally and professionally, I have grown from my experience at your clinic, and the time spent there has been so valuable to me as I continue on my professional journey.
Description: I had the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant for a graduate epidemiology course, first as a volunteer and then in a paid position. It was an enriching experience, and I was able to do more than simply help facilitate the course. I increased my own understanding of the subject by leading recitation periods, tutoring students, and working with an accomplished faculty member. Teaching also helped improve my communication skills, which include the ability to speak clearly and listen carefully. Both of these skills will help me to be a better physician.

Dorothy would like to see more general leadership meetings that include directors and managers across the organization.
Not only did I have hands on experience with patients but I also performed clerical duties such as scheduling appointments, recording demographic and insurance coverage information. At Piedmont Hospital I provided accurate education on procedures that were needed for new patients. Over the summer observing at Emory Hospital I accessed the effectiveness of therapy plan by observing patients’ reponses and observed patients during PT procedures to determine discomfort or pain. The last place that I completed my observation hours was at the Childrens Hospital of Atlanta in providing cold pack treatments and operated and maintained therapy equipment. Last but not least, I assisted the patients in administering active and passive therapeutic exercises.
When I was eight years old, my mom became paralyzed from the waist down. She was moved from hospital to hospital for one year before getting discharged and coming home. After seeing my mom being dependent on medical care for the rest of her life, my interest in medicine began to grow.

I want to be part of such a rewarding career. I feel that the subjects I have studied have provided me with a good foundation of skills and knowledge that I will use on a daily basis as Occupational therapist. In Biology I learned about the human body on a physical level. I found learning how the body works to be fascinating and I look forward to expanding my knowledge even more with this course.
Since the client utilizes a wheelchair for mobility, environmental modifications are necessary. When the client was discharged, they resided in an ADA apartment. The apartment was fully accessible for the client. Then the clients moved into their own 2-story condominium. The occupational therapist can make recommendations for the client.
The last few days I have had the chance to work with Chrystal I wanted to do a quick recap on what we have been able to cover in her training so far and confirm improvement on points Amanda was able to make in her first recap! Chrystal is overall very confident in setting up for appointment, filling out tray covers, getting patients from the front, walking them to the front, and taking photos (we discussed improvements on photos and techniques.) Here are a few appointments we have covered in the last few days. Comfort shorts: She is very eager to jump in!

I care about providing the best holistic healthcare I possibly can for my patients through evidence-based practice. I respect individuals’ race, socioeconomic class, gender, and sexual orientation. I work well with others and I strive to help create a good working environment where people can communicate, ask questions, learn new information, and feel respected. With this New Graduate Nurse Residency Program, I hope to be exposed to many different clinical situations. I hope to further develop my clinical leadership skills and to gain new knowledge.
My psychology training allowed me to improve my interpersonal skills that will certainly aid me in your residency program.

From teaching students in medical school to currently tutoring students for USMLE, I have always tried to pass on that knowledge. Throughout my career, I have recognized, learning is
