“I loved all of the hands on experience that we got with the course and the multiple topics that we covered over the weekend. The splinting experience, shoulder mobilizations, taping, as well as learning the general palpations of the muscles and bones were all great learning experiences for me. I cannot think of any areas that weren’t beneficial for me.” -Weekend Intensive Student, 2017
