Podcast: Easing the Transition From Student to Clinician
Listening Time — 46:55
Will Stokes, PT, DPT, is on a mission to prepare the future of our profession for the transition from student to professional.
In this episode, Will shared his story as once a student transitioning into a clinician, described how he prepped himself throughout his clinical rotations for his first job, and gives insight on his experience once he became a professional.
Will acknowledges the transition from student to professional can be challenging and steep, but he encourages students to ask questions, own what you don’t know or understand, and embrace the change moving into the new chapter in your career.
Here’s our conversation with Will.
