Perspective

It’s March. That means Madness! With the ever-exciting NCAA tournament just around the corner, I think it’s safe to say that my classmates and I are all excited that the mid-term madness is over. Last week was our first official week of mid-terms as PT students….seven mid-terms in five days!! So how’d we make it through all that information you might ask? Gratuitous amounts of coffee? Lots of group studying?? Taking full advantage of every possible white board in the Francis Center??? While we certainly utilized all of these things, I think one of my most helpful tools was the reminder that all of this hard work and studying is ultimately leading us towards being able to positively and tangibly affect the lives of our future patients.

It can be intimidating at times to think about how much information we have left to cover as students and on top of that, we’ll need to keep learning as professionals if we want to meet our true potential. However, when we realize that this continued learning is ultimately for the good of our patients, the intimidation factor goes way down. And honestly, isn’t it great that we’ll be working in a profession that keeps improving itself and that offers us fresh opportunities to learn and implement new skills?? The future, though filled with much learning and more studying, is bright and exciting!

Happy bracketology season!
