"I had a wonderful experience in graduate school at Queen's. The faculty were very supportive and the research facilities were exceptional. My program provided me with opportunities to improve my teaching skills and to present my research at national and international conferences. My doctorate from Queen's School of Rehabilitation Therapy opened the door to a post-doctoral opportunity and a tenure-track faculty position within a Canadian physiotherapy program."
