4 Sustainable Changes for Students to Make Right Now

By Tatiana White
It’s so easy to get caught up in the mundane day to day things of life as busy PT students. Sometimes, we can get so busy that we totally forget that there’s a whole world spinning in the background behind us. We want to take action on the causes that matter most to us, but it seems impossible to do when we’re staring at a screen for what feels like 24/7. However, like with most things, if there’s a will, there’s a way.

Clinical Reasoning as a Student

By Riley O'Connell
As a 3rd year physiotherapy student, I understand how much content and knowledge students in our course are confronted with.

6 Things I Learned from My First Placement

By Jaydn Field
1. Be organised. Ensure you have looked over your notes and have all necessary forms ready to go. Know how you’re getting there including; transport, parking, where to meet etc. This will allow you to be on time and make a good first impression. 2. Don’t be scared to fail! I found that the best way to learn is to fail. This is something I wish I did more often, instead of standing back and letting other students take over. Putting into practice what we have learnt is the best way to cement it in our minds...

Survive Exam Week with These 5 Tips

By Hayley Price
It’s that time of the semester again: exam week. Maybe you are feeling nervous, a little stretched for time, slightly frazzled or just not sure where to even start.

How to Thrive as a New Grad

By Justin Lim

It can be a weird experience, as you enjoy being independent and autonomous but you can feel like you don’t know a thing, especially when you don’t have previous experience in that particular clinical area… I wasn’t sure what to expect: what level of competency should I be presenting, am I supposed to know a certain condition, etc etc…

Needless to say, when I started working my second semester of DPT school, my professors disapproved...
