You are here.
You're approaching your final clinical rotation.
You are excited to reach the final step in your journey to becoming a physical therapist. However, you realize that there is still a big learning curve to come once you graduate and become licensed.
That learning curve not only entails the rest of your clinical experience, but also the responsibility and accountability of caring for patients, learning how to accommodate productivity goals, maintaining communication with physicians and other providers, supervising and directing staff, and maintaining a healthy work–life balance.
You realize there is a lot more to being a clinician than what meets the eye, and that may be a little daunting.
I totally understand, and I was in your same shoes just a few years ago.
