STUDENTS WORKING WITH PATIENTS

 

 

 

A portion of a letter received from a student April 2012:  
"Steve, I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude for all of the great advice and encouragement that you gave me while interning at MSI. I consider you one of my biggest mentors, and you made a remarkable impact on me in the short amount of time that I got to know you. I really respect your professionalism, commitment to patient centered care, and moral character.  You have an unbelievable ability to build relationships with patients, and you treat every last one with respect.  I hope to one day reach the professional and clinical heights that you have accomplished.....

 

Medford Sports Injury & Therapy Center, Inc. strives to maintain a high level of continuing education within their facilities. One way to do this is to provide physical therapy students from all over the country with affiliation/internship sites. Steve Zerkel is an Adjunct Physical Therapy Professor at many colleges and universities and we have additional certified clinical instructors that provide an educational environment. At any given time, you might see two or three students intent on learning and completing their required curriculum. The students bring current research back to our facilities in their relationships with our therapists. We also work with local high schools, community colleges and Southern Oregon University to provide shadow experiences. We are proud to give back to the physical therapy profession and further the educational background of both the students and the instructors.

Our Certified Physical Therapist Clinical Instructors are: Steve Zerkel, Erin Noble, Julie Horn, Matt Turpin, and James Mannenbach.
