SLU PT Clinical Site Spotlight – NorthShore University Health System at Sky Fitness Center in Buffalo Grove, IL
By Jemma Kim (Class of 2023)
My time at NorthShore at Sky Fitness has been absolutely wonderful. From the first day I knew that I was in good hands when I met my Clinical Instructor and SLU PT Alum, Sara Bayerle. Sara is an incredible teacher and even better physical therapist! She is so passionate about every single patient that we see and was excited to help me learn as much as I can in 10 weeks! I've grown in my skills of initial evaluations all the way to determining a plan of care for a patient. I've gotten to learn different exercises and grown tremendously in my manual therapy skills. I have felt so supported yet challenged in my growth as a student.
Thank you so much for making my 10 weeks so memorable! I have grown to love the profession of physical therapy so much in my time at Sky Fitness. Thank you for being a beam of light for our patients and for me as a student. Thank you for believing in me when I didn't believe in myself. :)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
