2017 Beatus Award- Trevor Hirsch

  • 2017 Beatus Award-Trevor Hirsch


    It is a privilege to present the 2017 Joseph Beatus Award for Excellence in Patient-Centered Care to Trevor Hirsch. Trevor has been an excellent student during his didactic coursework, but where Trevor shines is in the clinical setting. Every Clinical Instructor has raved about Trevor's ability to develop relationships with his patients, knowledge base, and ease with all those he encounters.

    Here is a summary from the nominators about Trevor:

    • Trevor has been impressive in his knowledge of advanced anatomy and kinesiology, as well as his ability to formulate an individualized plan of care on patient specific goals, clinical prediction rules, treatment-based classifications and other evidence-based treatments while using sound critical thinking and clinical reasoning. He has consistently been able to develop a positive rapport with patients, as well as staff. Trevor has shown great interest in operational measures and metrics, and I believe he has the personal skills, passion and drive to help promote the physical therapy profession.
    • Trevor provided great care, based on evidence and research, as well as critical thinking and clinical reasoning. His goals were always tailored to the patient's expectations and needs. He is very passionate about physical therapy, which is evident during his interactions with staff, as well as patients. Troy seems to be a natural manual therapist, but treats with an eclectic approach while focusing on regional independence. Troy evaluated a patient who was referred to PT for thoracolumbar pain, but noted red flags during the medical screen. After a discussion with the patient's PCP, further testing was completed, which revealed H. pylori resulting in a GI infection. The patient had been dealing with LBP for months, but after a short course of antibiotics, prescribed by the PCP, the patient's LBP completely resolved.

    We are excited to award Trevor with the Joseph Beatus Award for Excellence in Patient-Centered Care.
