Day of Observation
You may take notes regarding what you are observing, but they must be in general terms without names or other identifying information. If you use an electronic device to take notes, please only use it for that purpose. If you are found to not be compliant with the above requests, you will be asked to leave and your observation time will be ended.
Please dress with a professional image in mind. Business casual or hospital work attire is appropriate. Remember, you may be requesting recommendations from the therapists that you interact with, so your presentation speaks to how serious you are about your pursuits.
Please contact Joe Kostuch, PT, SCS, with any questions you may have regarding Clinical Intern and Observation Information.
