One of the most beneficial exercises that contributed to my professional development has been learning to read and apply academic articles to clinical situations.  Throughout my fourth semester I struggled with these assignments.  I never liked the feeling of “just getting by”, so I ordered a book online and studied all the things I didn’t understand.  Eventually, it made sense.  The assignment posted here is when it all clicked.

 

I was able to once again use these skills and my book in my first clinical rotation.  My clinical instructor was a wealth of knowledge in regards to practice supported by evidence.  We discussed articles on a daily basis.  We made a google folder in order to share important articles.  And we used evidence to guide our clinical practice with patients.  For me, evidence based practice had a prominent role in my clinical experience, but it began to have salience during that fourth semester.
