This presentation was attended by students, lecturers and the Persija medical team, who witnessed how the students explained their evaluation, diagnosis and treatment plans for the patients they had treated. This step not only demands clinical knowledge and skills from students, but also strengthens collaboration between universities and practice institutions.

One of the students, Lentera, stated, "Presenting in front of patients was an incredible experience. It opened the door for us to see the direct impact of our work and get direct feedback from the patients themselves."

Physiotherapy lecturer at UPN "Veteran" Jakarta, Andy Sirada, highlighted the importance of direct experience in learning. "We believe that exposing students to real-world situations is key to developing good clinical and communication skills. Presentations in front of patients help our students to become more confident and competent in facing challenges in the field."

The presence of Persija as a place for this case presentation shows strong support from external parties for the education and professional development of physiotherapy students. This also opens the door to further collaboration between universities and the sports industry in an effort to improve the health and performance of athletes.

This innovation reflects the enthusiasm and commitment of UPN "Veteran" Jakarta in providing high-quality education that is relevant to the needs of the job market. It is hoped that measures such as these will continue to enrich students' learning experiences and prepare them well for their careers in the challenging world of physiotherapy.
