Yes, here it is at last. 3rd year of my physiotherapy degree. Hasn’t time flown?!
Well, this summer we’ve really been keeping the pace up and doing as much as possible and it has gone past pretty quickly. All of a sudden I find myself, along with my classmates, staring down the road of our final year at University.
This year promises to be quite challenging, as you’d expect. The work volume notches up, the number of placements goes up, the number of things we need to have ready to hand in on consecutive weeks increases, and, of course, the stress levels rise. On top of all that, I’m also going to try to keep running, keep cycling, and keep sane, while getting in as many hours of work as I can.
My first placement has already been sorted out, so I know that I will be working in an MSK (musculoskeletal) unit in a hospital in Manchester. I’ll be focusing mainly (but not exclusively) on spinal issues, which is going to be a great continued learning experience. In the meantime, I will be working on a literature review, sorting out a portfolio and generally multitasking to quite a large degree.
Superb. Let’s have at it.
