Bridging Athletics with the entire Life U Community, with Tatiana Warman – Podcast

If you are familiar with the geography of the Life U campus, you might notice that it is somewhat split into two halves by our main street, Barclay Circle. Students heavily engaged in Athletics or Sport Health Science programs spend much of their time on the side nearest Rottenwood Creek, while most other academic endeavors of the University occur on the opposite side. Tatiana Warman, Director of Athletic Health, talks about how this artificial divide can be isolating and she hopes more ways can be found to help the whole campus feel more connected. She also discusses her career at Life U first as an athletic trainer, which has expanded into a larger administrative role that gives her the chance to make an even broader impact.

Thinking Beyond the Next Test to the Big Picture, with Dr. Stephen Paterno – Podcast

Pretty much no one likes the idea of undergoing rigorous, nail-biting testing to prove just how well they are understanding complex concepts. However, that is a major reality of chiropractic education, a necessary one to help ensure new chiropractors will be prepared to treat patients effectively and safely. The first comprehensive test that chiropractic students take at Life U is usually the OSCE in 12th quarter, designed to prepare students for the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) exams and primarily modeled after Part IV in style. Dr. Stephen Paterno is the Director of Clinical Assessment, discussing the role of assessment, proper preparation and retention of knowledge in future success as a chiropractic practitioner.
