Summary of Internship

At Kipnis Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine, I observe the therapists while they work on different patients. In the morning, I go around every table and make sure it is clean and prepared for the next patient. I make sure the laundry is done and the alcohol and water bottles are filled. I patiently watch the therapists and see how they deal with patients in different situations. I cannot physically touch the patients but I am allowed to assist them in their exercises and make sure they are safe. I also help the front desk with anything they would need. At Kipnis Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine gives you the opportunity to learn the business and physical therapy aspect.
