Influence of Exercise on Patients with Guillain-Barré Syndrome: A Systematic Review
Sometimes, a school assignment can become more than just an assignment.
While in our physiotherapy (PHTH 440) course, our group completed a literature review on the effects of exercise on patients with Guillain-Barré Syndrome as a class assignment.
Our professor, Dr. Marc Roig encouraged us to expand our horizons and attempt to have the assignment become a published article. After about a year and a half of constructive peer reviews from journal editors and having made various modifications, our article was finally published!
Our continued efforts throughout the entire writing and reviewing process paid off and we feel honored to now view our endeavor next to the work of distinguished writers, including some of our current and past professors.
We all appreciate that the SPOT faculty encourages its students to grow beyond conventional paths through diverse opportunities that enable the development of better clinicians.
We have learned a lot through this experience and hope to continue to develop and grow our professional networks through such opportunities.
In September 2016, we received our final confirmation that our article would be published as part of Volume 68 Issue 4 of the Physiotherapy Canada journal. We were proud and thrilled to hear the news! Read the article here.
