Student Comments from Summer 2023

I really liked the information taught in the program and how each day we had a different objective for class (casts, mental health, anatomy, nutrition). I loved both of the teachers, they were really informative and interesting, and down to Earth.’

It was a very interesting class, and we were engaged throughout the whole class. It was very interactive with many physical activities to keep us entertained. There was always time for questions, so nothing was too confusing.’

I really liked the class, it was very engaging. The teachers balanced teaching with fun activities where we were able to put into action the things that we learned. I liked learning how to wrap injuries and how to diagnose a concussion, etc.’

‘I really enjoyed hearing from our guest this week who works as a PT. I got a lot of helpful information and learned about her personal experiences. I loved the instructors who showed great patience while teaching. Thank you guys, it was such a fun week!’

‘The program was a great way to expose myself to sports medicine to see if I was genuinely interested in the field. It was relieving to meet people who also had been injured before and wanted to become a PT. It was nice to relate to each others’ stories.’
