Biochemistry senior, Rebecca Moore, is completing an internship at MedStar NRH Rehabilitation Network in Ellicott City working as a clinical assistant under seven different physical therapists. “I enjoy my internship because I am able to be involved with the patient’s recovery by assisting them in their rehabilitation. I prepare heat, ice, electrical stimulation pads, game ready sleeves and machines, and run patients through exercises depending on the patient’s needs for their recovery. In the future, I plan on attending graduate school to work towards my Masters and, eventually, my Doctorate in Physical Therapy.”
