Join us as we explore ways to improve patient care, PT practice and elevate student learning through evidence-based teaching.  Welcome to the Healthcare Education Transformation podcast, where today we'll be talking with Drs. Yvonne Colgrove, Ph.D., PT and Stephen D. Jernigan, Ph.D., PT, FNAP. They are focused on educational research and elevating the student learning experience. We discuss how they started the LEARN PT lab at the University of Kansas, the logistics for the LEARN PT lab, tips and tricks to implement an educational learn lab, and becoming a leader in education research across all health professions.  Yvonne Colgrove, Ph.D., PT, has been active in a variety of scientific endeavors and is interested in improving function for individuals who suffer from chronic conditions, having worked with patients with Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and chronic low back pain. In 2004, Colgrove joined the faculty in the KU Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science. In addition to serving as director of clinical education, she has taught courses in administration and ethics. She routinely addresses learning issues when physical therapy students are on full-time clinical rotations and manages hundreds of student clinical rotations over the course of a year. Feel free to email Dr. Colgrove at ycolgrove@kumc.edu Stephen D. Jernigan, Ph.D., PT, FNAP, has a clinical background in outpatient orthopedic physical therapy. He was appointed director of the University of Kansas physical therapy doctoral degree program in March 2017 and currently serves as a preceptor for physical therapy students in an interprofessional teaching clinic associated with the KU Department of Family Medicine. In early 2018, Jernigan and faculty colleagues in the department established the Leveraging Education And Research iN Physical Therapy (LEARN PT) laboratory to promote excellence and collaboration to optimize physical therapy education. Feel free to email Dr. Jernigan at sjernigan@kumc.edu. Visit the KU LEARN PT lab website for more information:http://learnpt.kumc.edu/ Dr F Scott Feil is a husband, a father, a physical therapist, a professor, and most recently an Amazon best-selling author. F Scott is also a business coach and mentor despite starting his journey as an English major before landing as a Physical Therapist. He is one of the creators and co-hosts of the Healthcare Education Transformation Podcast which aims to break down the silos between healthcare professions in an attempt to find best practices in teaching and learning throughout healthcare academia. He also hosts the Professors of Profit Podcast where he interviews healthcare professionals about their side gigs and side hustles. His goal is to help at least 222 professors (one from every PT School at the time of publication of his book) and clinicians pay off their student loans quicker and/or more efficiently by using multiple revenue streams. If he helps some others with terminal degrees or other healthcare clinicians along the way, then it's a bonus! He is also the owner of PTEducator.com , FGI Consulting, and Epic Therapy and Wellness. His areas of interest are in the realms of Geriatrics, Service Based Learning, and Business. Special thanks to both our sponsors, The NPTE Final Frontier, and Varela Financial! If you are taking the NPTE or are teaching those about to take the NPTE, visit the NPTE FInal Frontier at www.NPTEFF.com and use code "HET" for 10% off all purchases at the website...and BREAKING NEWS!!!! They now have an OCS review option as well... You're welcome! You can also reach out to them on Instagram If you're a PT and you have student loan debt, you gotta talk to these guys. What makes them unique is that they view financial planning as like running hurdles on a track. And for PTs, the first hurdle many of us run into is student loan debt. Varela Financial will help you get over that hurdle. They not only take the time to explain to you which plans you individually qualify for and how those plans work, but they ALSO take the time to show you what YOUR individual case looks like mapped out within each option.

Lifestyle-related chronic disease can be prevented, treated, and even reversed by eating delicious plant foods in their natural whole form.” Niki Davis, MD is a “rocket scientist” turned physician. She is board certified in both family medicine and lifestyle medicine. At age 13, she started removing animal products from her diet because she didn't feel it was healthy. Once in college, she obtained bachelor and master degrees in mechanical engineering and worked on the space shuttle program for several years. However, instead of having rockets on her mind, she was constantly thinking about health and nutrition – helping her own family members improve their health and their lives by switching to a plant based lifestyle. She eventually found her way back to her passion after leaving her engineering career to apply for medical school. She graduated from the University of Utah School of Medicine in 2017 and completed a Family Medicine residency program in 2020. While in residency, in addition to serving as Wellness Chief, she helped form Plant Based Montana, an advocacy group with the mission to educate healthcare providers and the general public about the benefits of a plant based diet. She has had the pleasure of speaking at plant based events around the country and has been lucky enough to train with phenomenal mentors such as Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Michael Klaper, Dr. Anthony Lim, and Dr. Alan Goldhamer, among others. She is a regular guest on Chef AJ's YouTube channel show and on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) Podcast. She has a certificate in plant based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies through eCornell and is certified in The Starch Solution. She feels extremely grateful to be doing what she loves every day – helping people live their best lives. In addition to being available for TeleHealth appointments, Dr. Davis will also be running plant based wellness retreats in locations around the world, once safe to do so.

In April of 2022 the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic medicine or AACOM graciously invited the D.O. or do not podcast to attend their national meeting, “Educating Leaders” conference in Denver, Colorado. Our two producers, Lerone Cark, MS-II at the New York Institute of technology college of osteopathic medicine and Brooke Pillegi, MS-II at the Alabama college of osteopathic medicine, as well as Ben Berg, our pre-medical student liaison, attended the conference to continue our mission of promoting awareness of osteopathic medicine by interviewing leaders in the field. We would like to thank Dr. Robert Cain, president of AACOM, Joseph Shapiro, director of media relations and Helene Cameron, Vice president of medical education services for having us at the conference and supporting the podcast. We had an amazing experience and would recommend the conference for any medical or pre-medical students interested in learning more about the inner workings of osteopathic medicine and osteopathic medical education. On this episode of D.O. or Do Not, we have Dr. Jeremy Ginoza, a family medicine physician and Attending at Skagit Regional Health Family Medicine Residency. In this episode, Dr. Ginoza shares his non-traditional path to medical school and his love for rural primary care. He dives into his own professional journey, beginning as the son of a minister, discussing the challenges and obstacles he's faced along the way. He offers advice for future medical graduates who may be interested in applying to his program and shares his wisdom on how to navigate and prevail in the face of such a rigorous profession, finishing the interview with one of his original poems. Like his journey into medicine, this is a “non-traditional interview” that you will not want to miss.  Recommended Reading: The Social Transformation of American Medicine by Paul Starr  The Seed by Dr. Jeremy Ginoza One day I planted a seed.In a pot one day, I planted a seed.Every morning I woke and I watered my seed,and I waited and watched for my seed to sprout.But I did not see my seed ever sprout.Still every morning, I watched for my seed to sprout. Then one day I woke, and I watered - a bud.And every morning I waited and watched.I waited and watched for my bud to blossom.I did not see my bud ever blossom,but I waited and watched for my bud to blossom. Then one day I woke and I watered - a flower.And every morning I waited and watched.I waited and watched for my flower to fade.I did not see my flower ever fade,but I waited and watched for my flower to fade. Then one day I woke and my flower I forgot.I did not wait and I did not watch,and I did not water my flower. Then one day I woke and I watered - a pot.And every morning I waited and watched.I waited and watched for my pot to.....and it was then that I remembered my seed. And so then I went out to find a new seed,and in my pot I planted the seed.And every morning I wake and I water my seed.Every morning I wake,watching and waiting for my seed to sprout.
