Question for anyone that can answer: How often do you use a stethoscope in PT school? Is it worth investing the money into a Littmann or get something cheaper like an MDF?

I have one that came with a PT Kit, but I swear it is so flimsy, and feels like its a one time use one type of thing...

Just use the kit one. Not worth spending the money for something you'll only use on practicals. IF you find you need one later down the road for clinic or a job, invest in one then.

Used it maybe 3 times. And for those who did not have it, they were provided. Buy the cheapest one if you have to. One time use is a perfect one.
