You may have noticed that we have a few new faces in the clinic!
The team at Oakville’s Palermo Physio and Wellness has taken on some co-op students this term. We have a couple high school students and a university kinesiology student putting in some learning hours around the clinic.
As Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, Chiropodists and Yoga Therapists, we have all volunteered or done placements in clinics and other settings. These opportunities helped us develop into well rounded practitioners.
Many of the students who step through our door have an interest in health care in some facet. Through their time with us we hope to help them navigate toward an area of interest (even if it doesn’t end up being on of our professions).
We hope to teach them some critical thinking skills that will be of benefit to them in the health care field. When the students have an opportunity to interact with patients in the clinic it provides them with a valuable opportunity to develop their interpersonal skills.
Thank you all for being wonderful and welcoming to these students whether it is simply saying hello or letting them give you a heat pack!
