SRS Spotlight: Gillian Manson, BHSc(PT) Class of 2000, PT Tutor

Gillian Manson PhotoGillian Manson has had McMaster Physiotherapy running through her since graduating from the BHSc (Physiotherapy) program in 2000. While working as a Physiotherapist at the Juravinski Cancer Centre, Gillian volunteers her time as a tutor, clinical instructor and clinical skills lab assistant. “I have always felt that assisting in the education of physiotherapy students is an important part of my role as a professional.  I think student`s provide clinicians with an opportunity to challenge their clinical knowledge and practice.”

Throughout all her involvement in the program, Gillian feels that the key skills McMaster Physiotherapy student`s possess are:  self-initiation, strong leadership skills, ability to reflect on performance and build on successes as well as the areas needing improvements. She also reflects that the self-directed and problem-based learning approach at McMaster provides students with a strong foundation for lifelong learning and confidence in looking for solutions.
