What Makes A Great PT School Applicant?
1:08:44
What Makes A Great PT School Applicant? Skye Donovan, Lori Bordenave and Chris Petrosino are physical therapists and have extensive experience in the PT admissions process as program chairs of three different PT programs across the country - Marymount University, A.T. Still University and Sacred Heart University.  The panel agrees a great PT applicant is someone who is strong academically, has grit, can persevere, is passionate, caring, compassionate and ready to change gears.  Applicants are highly encouraged to do their research when selecting a school. Each school has their own pre-requisites, separate applications aside from PTCAS, and interviews for admissions.  When it comes to the interview process whether it is an individual, group or video interview, the guests discuss that they look for strong communication skills and professionalism in the potential PT student. Listen to the stories these three share about their worst PT interview experiences (start 25:20).  The behavior guide of PTs and PTAs are the APTA Core Values. To understand how to behave and treat in this profession, these core values can guide how to come off on an application or personal statement.  QUOTES 15:11 One of the ways that you know you have everything on that application that is pertinent is to find somebody who knows you, loves you, and wants you to go to PT school.” - LORI  PARTING SHOT 1:04:32 “Everybody has a story. Know your story. Tell your story. I think that will make you genuine and really get you further by telling that story.” - LORI 1:05:02 “Optimize your talents. You have a lot of talents to bring to the table.” - CHRIS  1:05:51 “Don’t let fear paralyze you. Don’t be afraid of showing your true self. Try not to let fear overcome your ability to shine.” - SKYE  hool Applicant?

The Power of the 5 Pillars to Profitability in Physical Therapy with Will Humphreys
1:08:30
Will Humphreys is a physical therapist, entrepreneur, author, and speaker. Will coaches business owners and physical therapists across the country to his knowledge and belief of profitability. If you thought that was all, Will created a medical billing and consulting company called In the Black this past April. Will tells us about the events he endured to ultimately choose his path in physical therapy and becoming a physical therapist. Will goes further in how his past has shaped who he is today and describes the entrepreneur’s mindset: learn, endure, and lead. He discusses the difficulty starting his company Rise Rehab back in 2003 but mentions that even though that was the most difficult situation he had to endure, it is possible with work. In 2018, Rise merged with now Empower Physical Therapy. He gives us a clear understanding on what “profitability unlocks possibility” means and how this benefits the entrepreneur and current physical therapists. One topic Will coaches about is the 5 Pillars of Profitability: 1.       Reliability and transparency 2.       Consistency 3.       Efficiency 4.       Stability 5.       Predictability Will has created a YouTube channel to assist business owners, PTs, new graduates, and students on success in our industry. Take a listen here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd9MwDrfXzXbDjnEqRCW8wA Will describes to us the Core Four (heart, mind, body, spirit) and how he believes working on yourself everyday leads to success.

Osteomyelitis
5:40
Looking at Osteomyelitis Osteomyelitis which is a serious infection of the bone that is most commonly caused by a bacterial infection in the blood stream or exposure of the bone to contaminants (open fracture, surgical procedures).   In 25% of cases, this condition is predisposed by trauma. In children, this condition is most common in long bones due to the increased blood supply to the metaphysis to assist the growth plates.  In adults, this condition is most common in the spine due to increased vascular supply to the spine with aging or to other bone areas via an open wound and is also common in patients with diabetes mellitus due to increase risk of diabetic ulcers and delayed healing time.
