What our graduates are doing

From playing sport in high school, I became interested in how a physiotherapist could help me to achieve better on the field. Although I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do when I graduated, I knew I wanted to learn about anatomy and physiology which lead me to physiotherapy at UQ. The most valuable experiences I have had are the off-campus visits and clinical immersions. My top tip for new students is to actively meet the challenges of the program head on and to use your friends for support.
