Alyssa Noe-IIOP Student Blog-September 20, 2021

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is staying healthy and enjoying their week!

This week was full of fun educational activities that allowed us to put our newly learned knowledge to use. Tuesday we were given a pathology research article to read, take notes, critique, and then present what we learned about the article to the class on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday were fun filled days of clinical gait analysis where we learned the gait cycle focusing on the knee and ankle complex. In lab this week we analyzed our peers’ gaits and recorded their temporal and spatial data. I am looking forward to the next couple weeks where we finish learning the hip complex of the gait cycle and we get to present our findings on our partners!

We met and were introduced to a new faculty member, Mr. Martin, who is very knowledgeable in O&P. Additionally, we were introduced to the District Florida House Representative who was touring our school and learning about what we do in our profession. I found it very cool that my school is trying to raise awareness of our profession and what we do to help patients.

Check back next week for more and have a great weekend!
