Students are the future of physiotherapy and healthcare and from 20th April until 27th April 2015 they’ll be taking over the physiotalk twitter account, as well as organising and hosting a #physiotalk discussion on getting the most out of placements on the evening of Monday 27th April at 8pm BST. It would be fantastic if the whole physiotherapy tweeting community supported our student takeover team during the week both with tweets and discussions through the week and of course during the #physiotalk chat.
Our aims for the week:
- Promote student issues via the @physiotalk twitter account
- Engage physiotherapy students in twitter discussions that are led by students and important to students
- Develop the ‘takeover’ tweeters skills in running a twitter account and hosting a #physiotalk chat
About the takeover team:
The takeover team are all current physiotherapy students who are involved in the CSP student network supported by our two new @physiotalk student interns.
Lets meet the team!
@Rockettluke: 2nd year physiotherapy student at Bournemouth university, CSP rep, SEC student representative of comms & marketting, SEC chair. BU basketball vice captain
@sharrisonphysio: CSP Midlands Regional Student Co-Ordinator. 3rd year BSc Physiotherapy Student (University of Birmingham)
@HayleyOB_physio: Budding MSc student physiotherapist, CSP Course Rep and PPSD Rep to Student Executive Committee
Supported by our two new interns:
@rorytwogood: Physiotherapy student at KCL. Sport & Exercise Science Graduate – Bath Uni 2012. Qualified Sports Massage Therapist. The more I learn the less I know!
@physiohead: Final year student Physio at UoB / MCSP / Course Board Rep / CertHE Psychology / Cancer Survivor / Cyclist / Runner… especially if being chased.
So will Naomi and Janet be having a well earned twitter rest during the student takeover? I think the answer is probably not, but we won’t be tweeting from the @physiotalk account – everything you see during that week will be led by our fantastic #studenttakeover team!
