Last fall we hosted two Physical Therapy students who came to Park City and spent from 2-10 weeks at our clinic. Physical Therapy programs require several clinical affiliations and over the years we have had several students from all across the country.
This fall, Carolyn Baxter who is attending North Eastern University in Boston and studying for her Doctorate in Physical Therapy landed in Park City late September and was at our facility until the end of October. She has been able to see and treat all types of orthopedic injuries along with getting some time to spend outdoors hiking the trails of Park City and seeing what it is like to live in an international ski community. We also had a student from St Ambrose University in Iowa. Andrew was only here for 2 weeks and observed our therapists and participated in the daily patient treatment. He was amazed at all the athlete’s we treated and was able to spend time in our Salt Lake Clinic as well as experiencing what Park City has to offer. A Midwest young man who wanted to see the West.
We have several affiliations with universities all across the country including several students from the University of Utah Doctorate Program for Physical Therapy. We even hired a few. Our goal at Alpine Sports Medicine is not only to treat patients but stay involved within our community along with help contribute to the education of our future physical therapists.
