  • Kara Richardson to strengthen her skills in physical therapy
    Kara Richardson

    Thanks to an educational experience she describes as phenomenal, Kara Richardson, a senior Exercise Science major at Southern Arkansas University, looks forward to advancing her knowledge in the physical therapy program at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

    To enhance her educational and career goals, Richardson is interning at the Ouachita Rehabilitation Center in Mena, Arkansas. In observing outpatient and inpatient settings and learning about different patient populations and treatment techniques, she feels qualified for an exciting future in her chosen field.

    After completing her undergraduate degree at SAU in May, Richardson will pursue the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) at the UAMS Northwest Campus. “I want to work in an outpatient clinic helping people improve their daily living. Physical therapy includes a variety of practice fields, and I’m keeping an open mind as to my options,” she shared. Richardson will begin the program in August.
