Dr. Jenna Bauman '18 Completes Orthopedic Residency
In January of 2020, Dr. Jenna Bauman '18 completed a year-long orthopedic residency in manual therapy through the Ola Grimsby Institute (OGI). OGI combines 12-months of didactic work with 150 hours of one-on-one clinical mentorship, leading up to a rigorous exam week including written and practical examinations. This residency program is accredited by the American Board of Physical Therapy Residency and Fellowship Education.
Bauman completed her residency year while working at MTI Physical Therapy in Seattle, WA. OGI’s residency program is woven into the framework of MTI, allowing residents to work alongside and collaborate with clinicians who have already gone through the OGI curriculum, some of whom are instructors. "It was amazing to be able to learn a new intervention Tuesday evening, then integrate it into my treatment plan Wednesday afternoon during a mentorship hour with my instructor. I found great value in practicing new skills and clinical reasoning with others who could guide me, encourage me, and challenge me," Bauman said. "I was also honored to receive the 2019 Resident of the Year Award, bestowed upon me by Ola Grimsby."
Bauman went on to say that the residency experience provided her with a strong foundation of clinical examination, selective intervention, and, most importantly, advanced clinical reasoning. "I would recommend OGI courses for those who are seeking to become more effective and efficient clinicians through focused didactic review, strong one-on-one mentorship, and prescriptive therapeutic exercise," she emphasized. "These skills led me to my new position at New Heights Physical Therapy Plus in the North Tabor neighborhood."
