A couple of months ago I had the privilege of attending the University of Missouri School of Health Professions Award Luncheon and two things struck me.
First, graduating college seniors and traditional students completing graduate school look young. It’s probably a sign of my age more than theirs but I was amazed at how young they looked. Now that I think about it, they are young.
Second, GVMH has high quality staff. Not all of the award recipients were students and I was honored to witness one of GVMH’s outstanding clinicians receive an award at the luncheon. Kisa Eye is a Physical Therapist who works for GVMH in the Home Health Setting. Kisa is a great clinician but she was being recognized for being an excellent clinical instructor. Kisa was nominated by a former physical therapy student from the University of Missouri. Kisa served as the student’s clinical instructor during one of the student’s clinical rotations and she obviously made a great impression on the student.
Kisa was selected as the 2013 University of Missouri Physical Therapy Program’s Most Outstanding Clinical Instructor for 2013. Here’s a picture of Kisa (center) along with University Faculty; Kyle Gibson, PT, Ph.D., OCS, PT Department Chair, Associate Teaching Professor (on the left) and Richard Oliver, Ph.D., Dean Emeritus, Associate Professor of Pathology & Anatomical Sciences (on the right).
I had hoped to post this blog more than a month ago but I’ve been waiting on the professional photo from the University of Missouri. I took a picture with my iPhone but it didn’t look quite as “professional”. I’m sure after seeing the picture I took below you can understand why I waited.
