Student Success

“I had the opportunity to be mentored as I began to treat patients and learn of what it meant to be a pro bono-providing clinician. Many of the patients completely lacked the ability to pay for medical care and were very humbled by the manner in which the physical therapist respected them and motivated them to become more involved in their own care.
