I recently had the honor and opportunity to write an article for the American Physical Therapy Association blog “The Pulse” about the class my friend Shaun Whited and I started at Columbia University Physical Therapy Program called The Private Practice Elective.
Here is a quote:
“The course is structured around 3 key concepts:
- Providing students with the opportunity to learn about the business and finance side of physical therapy from local leaders in our field.
- Provide students with the opportunity to dedicate school time to working on postgraduation goals.
- Provide students with a platform to network with one another and students from other professional programs.
The great thing about this course is that we designed it so the students are in the driver’s seat. Students who take the course play an active role in choosing the topics we focus on and they get to help select the guest speakers, with guidance from the faculty, of course. Because of this, the course is adaptive to new ideas and allows students to learn more about topics that help them fulfill their professional interests and goals.”
Hope you enjoy it!
