I expected a great course from past experiences but this one exceeded them beyond imagination.
In the last year, I took two Con Ed courses with Jetset Rehab Education. When I saw that they were traveling to Cabo San Lucas with Marcie Hayes and Stephanie Di Stasi, I decided to register. I expected a great course from past experiences but this one exceeded them beyond imagination.
One could not ask for a better setting. First of all, the open air classroom was literally on the beach and had views of the famous arch of Cabo San Lucas. Instead of a white wall, the scene of the ocean, mountains, and occasional sail boat gliding by filled the space. The background sounds of waves, beach activity, and the occasional gust of warm wind were the only distractions to speak of. During the short mid lecture breaks, one could even take a quick swim and refresh in the Sea of Cortez. The course was instructed by what can only be called "Master Clinicians." Both Marcie Harris Hayes and Stephanie Di Stasi never failed (somehow) to keep the attention of the students. To be honest, as students, our attention never wavered. They were amazing. Their insight into the mind of the clinician made the material very relevant and the presentation of cutting edge evidence regarding hip dysplasia, femoral acetabular impingement and hip labral pathologies kept the course current.
"For me the best part about this trip was being able to network and meet new people."
Another point that I cannot forget to mention is the food! Breakfast and lunch was served complimentary for all the Jetset students at the beach club restaurant below the classroom. It was amazing. If this restaurant ( SUR Beach House ) was in my city, I would go to all the time!

All of this considered, my favorite part about this trip was being able to network and meet new people. I was fortunate enough to spend some time with Randal and Jay (Co founders of Jetset Rehab Education) who are two amazing people that I now consider my good friends. I love what they are doing with Con Ed in the Physical Therapy community by putting on courses with great topics and speakers as well as making it a great life experience. I will say this: I am a Jetsetter for life and I will be attending as many classes as I can.
