Project Description

The goal of the Rock Climbing Special Interest group is to provide an environment for Physical Therapy Students to learn through mentorship, guidance, panels, and article reviews about the management of rock climbing injuries.

Who can apply:
Any physical therapy student entering their 2nd or 3rd year during Fall 2021 with a GPA of > 3.3

Meetings:
Meetings will be held monthly via zoom throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. There will be seven total meetings. Each meeting will consist of a research article review followed by a case based scenario that involves clinical reasoning to assess and treat rock climbing injuries.

Independent Project:
Throughout the year, you will be mentored in the process of writing an article on a topic of your choice related to rock climbing injuries.

Application Due Date:
Applications are now open for the 2023 cohort. Applications are due by September 15th 2022 and will be reviewed in the order they are received.

Faculty:
Dr. Jared Vagy PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS – Director

Cost:
