Senior Biochemistry major Brianna Slattery plans to be a physician. Her internship at 4 Oaks Physical Therapy helped her to understand better the aftercare for surgical procedures and injuries. She worked as a PT tech, and assisted patients with their exercises. During these interactions, she heard feedback from the PT patients about the way their doctors treated them, the sorts of things they did not like, or ways that their recovery has been more difficult. This showed her the ways in she can strive for improvement in patient care, and what a patient is looking for in their doctor. She was surprised to learn that PT is more than just exercises and stretching, but has an important pain management approach with its administered therapies. Brianna is graduating from Stevenson in December 2022.
