What was the best thing you learned during your clinical training with patients?
How to answer
"I learned that by thoroughly assessing symptoms, therapists can be much more effective in treating patients. I shadowed a therapist who was extremely detailed in his approach. He encouraged me to take time to get to know patients in order to identify factors that could affect therapy and to know what exercises will work best." Give an example of something you learned that you think will benefit you in your career. It could have been something as simple as listening to patients, learning what to observe and how to treat an obscure illness.
