Why did you choose the School of Physiotherapy?

The School of Physiotherapy at the University of Otago has excellent reputation for its physiotherapy education and research. I got the news that Daniel (my current PhD supervisor) was recruiting PhD student via the BIOMCH-L when I worked as a research assistant at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. More importantly, Daniel’s research areas are meaningful and challenging. Additionally, the research coordinator and administrative staffs at the School of Physiotherapy are very supportive. Above all, these remarkable supervisory and departmental support encouraged me to embark on my PhD journey at the the School of Physiotherapy.
