Tyler is studying towards a Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Montana.  He joined the VACorps program in Jun 2019 and participated in a Sports PT Internship with a professional rugby team. 

“I chose Cape Town to do something different and it exceeded all of my expectations. I really enjoyed my time here and it was an absolute pleasure being able to enjoy everything Cape Town has to offer. I would highly recommend Cape Town and VAC to anyone who is interested! The weekly activities were a great part of the program because it makes it so easy to meet new people as well as a chance to do activities you normally wouldn’t!

My main goal regarding my internship was observing PTs and practicing in a professional setting working with athletes. My internship site far exceeded those expectations and I had a great time during my stint with the professional rugby team. The staff and players there were extremely welcoming and were able to give me the opportunity to show my knowledge as well as learn from the medical staff in various ways including acute injury care and on-field work during games.”
