Master of Physiotherapy endorsed in Neurorehabilitation
Christchurch physiotherapist Kathy Dwyer was able to tailor her Otago master’s degree to suit her work with clients with spinal cord injury.
“I was concerned about the time commitment and I was nervous about studying after such a long time, so I put a toe in the water at certificate level. The first paper was a steep learning curve but it set me up well. As a working clinician, I had questions I hadn’t had time or opportunity to really examine. I wanted to keep my practice relevant and current.”
Now with her Master of Physiotherapy endorsed in Neurorehabilitation, Kathy highly recommends postgraduate study at Otago.
“It totally re-energised my practice. It really develops your critical thinking skills for clinical practice. I got more from studying than I ever expected. It’s totally worth all the hard work.”
Kathy Dwyer graduated from the School of Physiotherapy in 2015 with a Master of Physiotherapy (endorsed in Neurorehabilitation)
