We encourage and support a range of voluntary, additional opportunities that may enhance employability and professional development. These include providing physiotherapy services at events such as the Plymouth Half Marathon, Plymouth 10K and assisting court side with Plymouth Raiders Basketball Team, plus supporting students in their own charitable and community engagement, underpinned by the Plymouth Award.
Physiotherapy students in years two and three have the opportunity to volunteer to assist the Plymouth Raiders Team Physiotherapist Kiah Rosenstein in providing therapy. This could include taping and stretches prior to matches and also being present courtside during the game in case of injury. One of the students who volunteered was third year Helen Greensmith "It was a great opportunity to put into practice some of the physio skills learnt on the course and witness the players’ physical and psychological preparation before the game".
I want to help others achieve their physical potential and be the best they can be. This has been a very rewarding career and given me great personal satisfaction.
Kiah works closely with Plymouth Raiders Basketball team on a daily basis and uses her skills to help the team perform to their maximum potential.Kia tells us more
