Recovering from a knee injury inspired Jack Riddle to study a Master of Physiotherapy at VU. He shares his experience.
“I found some internship roles with AFL and VFL clubs over the next two years while working a labouring job.
“Having admired the way my physio helped me through my injury both physically and mentally, and how professional they were, I decided that’s what I wanted to be.”
Support for success
“The best things about VU are the facilities and the helpful library staff and course coordinators, who actually understand students’ lifestyles and different reasons for taking the course, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.”
Looking to the future
“What I love about physiotherapy is the ability to help people improve their life, even a small amount. It will be such a rewarding career.
“In the future I would love to own my own health clinic, offering physiotherapy as a main service, but also other areas to create a more well-rounded health service.”
