My fellowship experience:
During my fellowship at Twin Cities Orthopedics Physical Therapy I learned a great deal about medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, the science behind specific treatments, and skills that are important for a successful career in physical therapy. Over the course of the fellowship, I studied the rehabilitation process after a total or partial knee replacement. Not only did my fellowship expose me to various skills that are essential for a successful physical therapist, but it opened my eyes to various career routes within physical therapy.
