PT graduates making a mark in emerging fields

CPH’s Lucinda Christian, a recent PT graduate, is one of many CPH graduates moving on to emerging areas in physical therapy. She is currently doing a one-year residency in Women’s Health at Good Shepherd Penn Partners, which involves extensive training in Pelvic Floor Therapy for men and women and lymphedema training.

Her residency includes mentorship with senior level therapists, shadowing with a variety of doctors and surgeons, working at multiple sites throughout the Good Shepherd Penn Partners organization, regular attendance to special interest groups, and a capstone project.

"Temple University's DPT program taught me more than just tests, measures, facts and figures; it taught me to critically think by asking questions, looking at the research and most importantly, to listen to the patient's story." Christian said. "In the field of Women's Health, perhaps more so than other sectors of PT, looking at the whole picture, the whole person is essential, and I don't think I could have been better prepared for this."

Lucinda also conducts lectures, including a recent one hour lecture at in the CPH DPT program on osteoporosis
