Don’t Take Our Word For It! A grateful physical therapy student


Child and Family Development physical therapists and occupational therapists are pleased to partner with University of North Carolina- Allied Health programs to offer internships for students interested in pediatric therapy.   

In 2017, Jessica Turchin MPT ATRIC supported a young man completing his final physical therapy placement.  Upon completion of the program, he surprised her with a lovely note about his experience that included these words:

“…You are an amazing instructor. You are patient, supportive and challenging which has helped me grow so much.  I came into this rotation with uncertainty and very little confidence and you helped turn that around.  I had so much fun with you and all the kiddos and I feel much more comfortable with my ability and potential to become a great PT (hopefully as great as you someday!). Thank you again for all your hard work and incredible energy everyday.  You are AMAZING!”
