Why You’ll Love This Job
Here’s a little more more information about the Rehab/PT Tech internship for students who are seeking more clarification: If you are interested in getting started for Winter 2023. . .please let me know right away.
Just to tell you a little more about the FYZICAL internship, experience is not necessary. . .The internship is designed specifically for students who are seriously trying to get their foot in the door of a medical office who don’t have prior experience and who are planning to apply and attend a health related graduate school like PA, PT, OT, Podiatry, Nursing, Medical School and need clinical hours and a recommendation source for the Letter of recommendation that is required. All training for the internship ” is on the job”. This is a paid internship–however; it’s an internship and is not highly paid–if you are just looking for a job; this may not be the right fit for you. Many students appreciate the pay instead of having to get hours through unpaid volunteer hours. There is NO shadowing in the internship–this is all one on one patient care/clinical hours.
The timing of doing a year -long internship is important. We feel strongly that having the opportunity to get to know a student for a year before we do their letter of recommendation is critical–students become confident and become leaders and trainers in the latter part of their year internship and it gives us the opportunity to see their confidence, talents and abilities and we can write a strong/personal letter for them versus knowing a student a short time and we really don’t know them that well and they are training. The first two questions we are asked from the CASPA referral program when completing a recommendation for a student are:1. How long have you known the student?
2. How well do you know the student? Of course, we want to answer that we have known them 1 year and that we know them very well. We are very passionate about our Internship program and we have a great desire for our students to reach their goals and get accepted into a graduate program and we are committed to work hard on our end to help in any way we can with letters, interview prep, mock interviews and advice.
Our students work 12 to 18 hours per week either MWF from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. OR TTH from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. OR 1 pm to 7 p.m. During the 1 year internship, our techs will learn on the job how to assist patients with modalities like Ultrasound, electrical stimulation, laser, massage and offer assistance. Students working a T TH shift can earn over 600 hours and students working a MWF shift can earn around 936 hours.
If this sounds like something that you have an interest in pursuing, please let me know and I’ll find a time for you to come and interview. My email is [email protected]
