  • At Miami, I have been working with our various intercollegiate teams and have had a ton of hands on learning and great professional experiences. It's one thing to learn about injuries and special tests in the classroom, but it is even better when you are out at practice seeing the injury that was discussed in class occur right in front of you and the steps that happen after an injury occurs.
