PT Profile: David Bond

Posted by NAIOMT on May 19, 2016 8:31:34 PM

This week, we'd like you to meet David Bond, a third-year student physical therapist at the University of Washington. But he's not your average PT student. A former fire fighter and paramedic, he's currently interning in outpatient physical therapy at Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon. As we've mentioned many times before, we feel it's important to hear (and learn!) from not only the most seasoned PTs, but those who are the next wave to be in the field. David is showing tremendous promise and passion and we're pleased to share a bit of his perspective with you.
