"We are here to teach our students clinically, professionally, ethically."
IRENE PERGJIKA, MS, ALUMNA, CLINICAL MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING PROGRAM: Touro College is a very student-centered environment. It provides you with guidance and support throughout your years here.
SHANEL SINGH, STUDENT, MASTER'S IN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY PROGRAM: The classes and field experiences at Touro are established in sequence manner, so the students get to apply the theories and interventions that we learn while things are still fresh in our mind.
DANA YEE, STUDENT, DOCTORATE OF PHYSICAL THERAPY PROGRAM: The faculty is extremely helpful. They're always reachable by email, or whether they're in their office. But they always want you to excel, so they really take the time out of their day to go through more information with you or help you with whatever you need help with.
KRISZTINA SZABO, STUDENT, NURSING PROGRAM: Most of them have 30-plus years' experience. They really have the insight, what you should know, and they really prepare you for the real life.
SHIRA WEINER, PH.D., ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, DOCTORATE OF PHYSICAL THERAPY PROGRAM: So we try to instill in our students that research is important, and that we all have an obligation to contribute to the research base by doing our own innovative research.
SHIFRA LEISER, OT.D., ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, MASTER'S IN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY PROGRAM: But in addition to that, we do work very hard to give our students a multitude of clinical experiences in a wide array of settings with diverse populations. So they're not only getting theoretical or foundational knowledge, but the clinical application piece is strong and important to us, as well.
SEAN GETTY, MS, OTR/L, ALUMNUS, ADJUNCT PROFESSOR, MASTER'S IN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY PROGRAM: Coming from my prerequisite work at a large institution, and what attracted me to Touro was the small class sizes, while still having the benefit of a much larger university system.
CARLOS A. COELLO, MBBS, STUDENT, PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT GRADUATE PROGRAM: The interaction with the instructors is very personal. They can offer us additional help during off hours, and I find that really amazing.
STEVEN BLAUSTEIN, PH.D., ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, MASTER'S IN SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY PROGRAM: We are here to train students clinically, professionally, ethically, and teach them the breadth and depth of knowledge they need to be successful.
JUSTINE GJELLAND, STUDENT, MASTER'S IN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY PROGRAM: They really try to promote outside activities, so it's a good way to learn leadership and advocating for our field.
YOCHEVED HOMNICK, STUDENT, MASTER'S IN SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY PROGRAM: The facilities are just gorgeous. The classrooms are spacious, they're modern, they're comfortable, well-lit, and they're up to date in all of the technology.
NAFTALI JAROSLAWICZ, STUDENT, MASTER'S IN SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY PROGRAM: I see Touro College as very cognizant of individual cultures and ethnic backgrounds. I feel comfortable that Touro College takes care of whatever my cultural needs may be.
KLARISSE MATHIS, MS, PA-C, ALUMNA, PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT GRADUATE PROGRAM: Being in a different type of schooling, it is Jewish-based, but we had a pretty mixed class. So just learning to deal with religion, being with other classmates, learning their cultures and ethnicities and things of that nature, it definitely prepared me going into the real world.
SHAINA MUSKAT, STUDENT, PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT GRADUATE PROGRAM: I would tell another student thinking about coming to Touro to look at Touro's product. As a pre-PA student in New York City, I shadowed and worked alongside many Touro Manhattan alumni. I saw firsthand what excellent, top-notch clinicians they were and that made a strong impression on me. I wanted to be like Touro's product, so here I am.

Are you ready for a slice of innovation? 🍕🧠 Our latest SOTA Lunch & Learn event was a hit thanks to Teryn Bieler and Jeannine Eastland! 🙌🏼 These Touro OT alum and NYC DOE occupational therapists shared their hands-on workshop and inservice on an exciting new interoception awareness curriculum they are implementing at their District 75 school. They're helping students learn to feel, identify, and act appropriately on internal senses and states to improve functional performance and behavior. And of course, it wouldn't be a Lunch & Learn event without pizza!🍕#SOTA #OccupationalTherapy #otstudent #wearetouro
As the 3rd year Manhattan DPT students completed their clinical rotations, the Student Physical Therapy Association asked a few to reflect on their experiences. To close out the week, we have Mackenna Krakowsky: ❓What has been your most challenging patient case?❓ To be honest there are a number of patient cases that are challenging, but one of the most challenging is a post concussion syndrome patient with cognitive/fatigue, vestibular, and migraine profiles. It is a challenging case because some of their main symptoms involve short term memory deficits as well as cervicogenic dizziness and migraine symptoms. This make it difficult because they have trouble remembering exercises/interventions and thus increasing the time it takes for them to make consistent improvements. ❓What has been your biggest takeaway from this experience?❓ This whole clinical has been a learning experience! Academically, I have learned about vestibular rehab, differential diagnoses (some I didn't even know existed!) and how to regress and progress vestibular treatment interventions. Additionally, I have really learned the importance of patient education in this setting. And personally, I have learned to trust my instincts as a clinician and to embrace the unknown by consistently being encouraged to ask questions and pursue new information. #physicaltherapy #ptstudent #pt
