SLU PT Student Hannah Redden had Countless Learning Opportunities at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio
SLU PT Clinical Site Spotlight - Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio
By Hannah Redden (Class of 2022)
I am so grateful for the clinical experience I had at Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati, OH. This experience provided me with the opportunity to evaluate and treat a wide variety of patients from the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit (NSICU), Orthopedics, Critical Decision Unit (CDU), Medical Surgical Intensive Care Unit (MSICU), and Adult Behavioral Health Unit, as well as the opportunity to observe in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Outpatient Pediatrics. I enjoyed the quick-paced and versatile schedule of the inpatient setting. I am thankful for the skilled team of Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists, Nurses, and Physicians with whom I worked to develop appropriate treatment and discharge plans based on an individual patient's needs. I am thankful to all the patients I encountered who provided me with countless learning opportunities by allowing me to play an active role in their care.
To my Clinical Instructor, Aaron Willig, PT, DPT, thank you for your mentorship throughout this clinical experience. Your guidance allowed me to advance my clinical reasoning and physical therapy skills. I appreciate that you took the time to engage in conversations with me regarding our patient cases and intervention plans. Thank you for your continuous encouragement, your helpful feedback, and for trusting me to provide quality care to each patient we encountered. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to learn from you and I will carry what you have taught me into my professional practice.
SLU PT Student Emily Gier is Thankful for the Positive Experience she had at Athletico in O'Fallon, Missouri
SLU PT Clinical Site Spotlight - Athletico O'Fallon-South, Missouri
By Emily Gier (Class of 2022)
I am so grateful for my experience at Athletico O’Fallon South with my Clinical Instructor and Alumni, Michaela Ward, PT, DPT, COMT. Every day I walked into a welcoming and positive learning environment in which I was able to grow in my skills as a clinician. Each day I was excited to take what I learned in the classroom over the past couple of years and apply it working with real patients. The patients and other staff at the clinic were incredibly kind and welcoming and I enjoyed getting to build relationships with them over the course of my 10 weeks there. Over the course of my time at Athletico, I learned so much about various treatments and interventions. However, I would say the number one thing my CI taught me was the importance of building strong relationships with your patients. It was clear how much each patient respected Michaela and enjoyed working with her in the clinic.
Michaela, Thank you so much for being such an amazing CI. You helped give me the confidence to exceed during my time at Athletico as well as on my future clinical experiences. Additionally, thank you for creating such a fun experience in which each day I was excited to come to the clinic.
This is one of a series of posts by the Saint Louis University Program in Physical Therapy students featuring their clinical site and their clinical instructors. The number, quality, and diversity of clinical instruction are major assets for the SLU PT Program.
