|I have had the opportunity to experience Physical Therapy (PT) from various perspectives. In my roles as clinician, consumer, advocate, and assessor, the expectations of PT practice which I view as constants are that:
1. The profession is a dynamic and vital part of the healthcare and social community
2. The practitioner is expected to provide the client with excellence in choice of clinical specailist, with care delivered in a professional and "safe" environment where the principles of ethical practice and cultural sensitivity are upheld.
I believe that the foundation for these expectations is found in a "solid" clinical and didactic education. I encourage the collaboration of student, clinical instructors, program faculty, and administration in the pursuit of such excellence.
