Each year the Michigan Physical Therapy Association solicits recommendations for "Outstanding Student" from all physical therapist and physical therapist assistant programs in the state of Michigan. These awards are intended for students who:
- are in the final year of their professional curriculum
- have a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 3.2 or higher
- are a member of the APTA/MPTA
- have demonstrated "outstanding" participation in academic, professional and related community activities.
We are proud to announce that Student Physical Therapist Assistant Kameron Joostberns was awarded the Outstanding Student of the Year Award for Baker College at the annual MPTA Fall Conference in Traverse City. This event offers the opportunity to network and meet with physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students in physical therapy from across the state.
"Kameron is very passionate about the field of physical therapy and excels in his coursework and lab skills,” said Physical Therapy Assistant Program Director Sarah Case. “Kameron’s background, aptitude and willingness to learn are foundations for a long and productive career in this field."
