I am a wanna-be yogi – I have been trying to force my hamstrings and core into cooperating for almost seven years now.. and I will probably need to keep you posted for,.. well,.. forever on how that’s coming along. I stumbled across an article this week specifically pertaining to yoga practice, but I think it applies pretty directly to my PT education at this point. The Reader’s Digest version of the article goes something like this:

 

PRACTICE. PRACTICE. PRACTICE. And, when you think you have practiced enough, continue to practice. An expert level of skill is only achieved after you have spent 10,000 hours working at it.

 

I have a few choice words when I think about how long 10,000 hours really is. But, what better way to spend my time then working towards something that I love to do? With a few weeks left in the semester, let’s not forget why we are really in this program. We are doing something we LOVE at one of the BEST universities in the country.

 Welcome Back!

 

Students are returning from a quick spring break, recharged and ready to take on the next month of classes. To welcome the first years back are a smattering of exams, including musculoskeletal and neuroscience. The irony of my brain (trying to) learn about my brain has occurred to me several times before, but the perspective below is truly astounding. Perseverate, first year class, and find some inspiration in this fantastic TED talk to get you through the coming weeks!

As I was sitting at the airport on Friday night, I had a stack of neuroscience notes and an US Weekly competing for my attention (both school related, I promise – my 14 year old patients know more about the Oscar winners than I do. I’m really far behind on my celeb gossip..)

 

In my effort to continue to procrastinate, I stumbled upon the recording of PT Grand Rounds from earlier in the day. Beau Troutman presented a case study from his yearlong internship, captivating the room recounting this specific patient encounter.  This is a great example of patient centered care and the power of our profession.

 

Check out the video below to see what I mean:

 

When Neuro and Ortho Collide – Beau Troutman, SPT

As it turns out, while waiting for my flight, I was able to review some neuroscience, pediatric pathology, and ortho. Thank you for the great lecture, Beau! #H2P
