Program: Master of Physical Therapy
Year in Program: 1
I wanted a career that I felt gave me a reason to get up in the morning. I wanted a career that would challenge me to keep learning for life and keep up with the body of scientific knowledge that only grows every day. At its core, physiotherapy is all about helping people interact with the world again. Physiotherapists work in many different disciplines and this means that we have the freedom to choose where we practice. That’s what drove me to apply to the program.
I was born and raised in B.C. and I really wanted to attend UBC because it would give me a perspective that is centered around British Columbia. From rural health to rapidly growing city populations, the health care challenges we face here in this province are unique, so I am glad I am here at UBC as they have faculty devoted to working on health care issues keeping British Columbians at the forefront.
