I felt that Keegan was very in tune with my learning process. He was very gifted at picking out the important bits of what I was saying and put them into practical goals. My experience in this internship was excellent. I feel very fortunate to have found such a great clinical instructor. Keegan was very involved in my learning process and it was a very intense one-on-one experience. It was really nice to be in an intimate learning environment in terms of interaction with the instructor as well as with the patients. Not only were we in their homes, sometimes 2-3 times per week, but each session was completely one-on-one for 45-60 minutes. This type of environment provided an opportunity for a very in depth analysis of each patient on an ongoing basis. I very much enjoyed the analytical process and learning to apply clinical skills to their respective problems. Keegan helped me to fine tune those necessary skills. I was grateful to have had such a pleasant experience in this field of physiotherapy.
I’ve really enjoyed the range of patient conditions, the interactions with my supervisors and the patients. The opportunity to see how neuro physio works in private practice was excellent and the atmosphere has been encouraging, positive and helpful in facilitating further learning.
I would tell them to definitely go for it (the placement) because I was able to see many different patient groups that I was otherwise unable to see in my previous hospital placements. Also, the clinical educator is a very knowledgeable and experienced neurological physiotherapist who knows how to properly teach and support students during the placement.
The quality of the treatments I observed and learnt was higher (compared to my hospital placements) because I had one on one supervision, more time per patient and higher demands of the patient towards treatment. It was definitely a good opportunity to enhance my practical neuro skills in a safe environment because I was under constant supervision. The supervisors at Klint take a lot of care in making me understand what they are doing with patients but are also very open to your questions and reasoning. Keep up the good work!
The teaching was excellent and of a very high quality. You can instantly tell that all the physios have a high level of knowledge in neuro and were able to pass some of that onto myself. I also enjoyed being involved in the PD session where specific subjects were covered which helped in my own learning. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Klint Intensive Neuro Therapies. I have gained such an insight into neuro physiotherapy and many of the conditions that it involves. I now have knowledge of how to approach and treat these patient’s due to observing and learning from highly experienced physiotherapists. Thank you again for having me!

community setting. If neurological physiotherapy is the career pathway for you, this is
one of the placements that you would not want to miss.
