  1. Larry,
    Great job as usual. I always look forward to your thoughts. Here are few items i wrote down that did not make your list that I see in my area, neither good or bad….just observations.

    1. Outpatient clinics are now all sports clinic with very few of the clinicians with a sports background.

    2. Certifications outside of APTA board specialties (Too many to name) and the litany of letters behind one’s name these days.

    3. A decrease in athletic trainers going PT school (this may be a local issue)

    4. New graduates not staying in outpatient care

    5. A movement away from manual therapy to exercise
