Kuni's Thoughts on Texas State
Why Texas State
I chose Texas State because of the great athletic training
program and physical therapy
Why Physical Therapy
My original goal was to improve my knowledge and skills to provide better care to athletes. However, I want to help everybody who can benefit from our profession. I have started working with non-athletes as a part of my physical therapy degree. I am very happy that my knowledge and skills can be used to help patients and athletes get the care they need.
I want to contribute to improving the quality of orthopedic physical therapy and athletic training in Japan.
I really appreciate all the professors and instructors in the athletic training program and the Physical Therapy Department. They help me learn, try to understand me well, and inspire me.
It has been important to me to have opportunities to meet and know great professors and instructors. I strongly believe that the way professors teach and the professional attitudes they have change students’ perspectives of education, professions and lives.
My Most Valuable Learning Experience at Texas State
My most valuable experience has been the evidence-based practice (EBP) approach the physical therapy school uses. EBP plays a very important role in the health profession world because it gives patients the most effective and efficient care available to them.
