Clinical Conversations

A resident’s perspective.

Hello! Melissa and Madeline here, and for those who we have not yet had the opportunity to meet, we are the two physical therapy residents working with Nick and Katie this summer.

We are from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse where we are in our third and final year of the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program.

This has been the first of our three clinical internships, and we could not have been luckier in our first placement!

Working at Nick Rinard Physical Therapy this summer has been a great opportunity for the two of us to improve our clinical skills and grow as clinicians.

We are lucky to have two incredible mentors (Nick and Katie) to follow and learn from every day.

Nick and Katie have so much knowledge to share and go above and beyond in treating their patients.

Likewise, we are lucky to have such wonderful patients who allow us to work with and learn from them as well.

We look forward to the last couple of weeks we will be working at the clinic before heading back home to the Midwest to finish up the last of our schooling.

Both of us are very grateful for this experience!
