Dear PT Students,
“Do you think students will be prepared after a year of their education being affected by COVID?”
You are over a year into navigating your education since COVID.
I don’t know how you’ve done it. I’m impressed. The adjustments you’ve had to make, the constant changing and the lack of certainty only adds to an already difficult program.
I hope you know how awesome you are and I hope you know that while I’m sure it wasn’t enjoyable, it has already made you a better physical therapist.
Being a PT is ALL about being able to pivot and change course when needed. It is about constantly wondering and assessing whether you are on the right track. It is about taking it one session at a time and knowing that you may have to adjust daily.
So yes, I think PT students will be better prepared for their careers than ever before. I think the fact that you have persevered and adapted all damn year makes you more than ready.
You are ready and you will be ready.
