Below are some quotes from previous volunteers who have completed 25 hours of service at PAPT:

Natalie Farah, University of the Sciences 2015 (PT track)

"After volunteering at PAPT for a summer, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in physical therapy. It was definitely a great experience seeing my dream job first hand. All the therapists were so friendly and helpful to me and the patients. They made a great atmosphere for therapy and learning. Volunteering at PAPT helped to give me motivation to do well in my PT classes at school and progress through the program with confidence."

Kirsten Spearman

Thank you so much for allowing me to volunteer and observe you. I have learned so much here. Observing on-site at Memphis was one of the best experiences I've had as a PT student. I hope our paths will cross again. Thanks for everything.
