Lauren Hall – 4th yr BScKin
I was lucky enough to conclude my practicum as a Chiropractic Assistant/Kinesiology Student at River Valley Health. River Valley Health and The Base by RVH are the gold standard in integrated sport performance, injury recovery, health & fitness where they offer one-on-one, sport specific, and group training programs and packages.
The most beneficial thing I have taken away from my practicum is the connections I have made to various health care providers and staff members. As well, I have gained an exposure to a variety of careers relating to my degree that will help further me post graduation.
Advice I would recommend for a future practicum student is to take initiative and not be afraid to ask people for help – this is the way to learn. Ask the individuals around you about their careers and don’t let yourself get into a routine. Try and learn something new each day and step outside of your comfort zone to get as much information as possible.
