Podcast: I Don't Care About My Grades
Listening Time — 24:20
Earlier this year, Hannah Belles, SPT, couldn't shake a poor grade she'd received on an exam. She was so upset by it that she started to doubt herself. It wasn't until she shared her story via the APTA Pulse blog that she began to shift her perspective. Maybe instead of holding her grades in such high regard, it made more sense to see them as milestones, or as check-in points.
In this episode, Hannah acknowledges that while grades in physical therapy (PT) school are important, it's learning the content and skills that matters most. Along the way, Hannah refers to PT school as a marathon, even citing similarities with ultra-running and what's known as "the pain cave."
Here's our conversation with Hannah.
