VERMILLION, S.D. - Physical therapy is a vital field that aids individuals through the healing process following an injury. Students may choose to pursue a career in physical therapy if they are interested in studying the science behind injuries and helping patients achieve their recovery goals.
On this week's episode of Credit Hour, Host Michael Ewald has a conversation with Brandon Ness, Ph.D., assistant professor of physical therapy, about his career with outpatient and sports physical therapy practice, his research in the physical therapy field, and what he teaches his students on a daily basis.
“I always tell my students to make sure you know what you’re getting into. I think a good way to do that is to get a diverse array of observation experiences,” Ness said. “I think with physical therapy and occupational therapy, I’d recommend observing both and being able to really see what goes into each different profession and what differentiates those so you can make an educated decision that's best for your future.”
