I have to say it: I truly loved the time spent studying for my doctorate (2008-2010) at the University of Michigan – Flint Physical Therapy Program. What I thought it would be…what it was…and what is has meant to me…these things have all morphed over the years. One thing is for sure: I made friends and met professionals that have shaped who I am today.
Recently, these things have come full circle: upon the recommendation of some of the UM Physical Therapy professors, I have been able to provide some in-service/lectures at our Annual MPTA Fall Conference (which has been a blast!). I was excited to share my perspective on the UM PT t-DPT program in a recent update of the programs website. And I have undergone one of the greatest shifts in my career, with the urging/support of one of my former professors-turned-mentor (Dr. Jamie Creps, PT), I have spent this past year diving head-long into private practice … and have been the most excited, happiest (and wide-eyed with fear) clinician I have ever been in my life.
