Hello! I’m Candice and I am a new grad physical therapist. I will be blogging about my experiences as a new grad (hopefully weekly). As of right now, I only have the “About Me” section up and running. But be sure follow the blog and check back in the next week or so since I will be updating you on my first few days as a practicing PT!
My name is Candice and I am the creator of the two blogs, the Life of a DPT Student and the Life of a New Grad Physical Therapist. My blogging days began in the months leading up to physical therapy school in 2012, where the fear of facing cadavers sent me into a downward spiral of a panic disorder. The Life of a DPT Student set out to prove to others that panic disorders, cadavers, and physical therapy school are all conquerable. In August of 2015, I graduated from PT school and began the search for a job which ultimately landed me in a full-time position in an outpatient ortho clinic. The Life of a New Grad PT is currently an active blog that follows me in my new journey as new grad PT. It is my hope that wherever you are in life and whatever obstacles you may be facing, you find some of the answers you need in either of these two blogs.
