A recent graduate from the McMaster’s Physiotherapy (PT) program, David Evans is enjoying practicing in the areas of orthopedics and sports in Halifax, NS. He attributes his confidence in taking this major career step to skills he acquired in the two year Master’s program, which is rooted in problem-based and small group learning. The program fosters collaboration among students and combines academic and clinical learning. “What is impressive about McMaster’s PT program is the strength of and the opportunity for self-directed learning,” said Evans. “The intensity of research generated by physiotherapy faculty and clinicians who are recognized internationally for applying evidence-based practice in physiotherapy is equally as inspiring.” Evans also appreciated the opportunities offered outside the classroom where he gained complementary skills through a wide range of activities including serving as a multiple-mini interviewer for the program’s admissions day and as the programs lab assistant.
