I'm a second year BSc Physiotherapy Student at Brunel University and CSP student representative for the 2014 cohort. I had my first 6 week placement at Royal London Hospital MSK outpatients department. I found the experience immensely rewarding and I've learnt so much whilst being here. Whilst here I've seen so many patients, with problems ranging from low back pain to distal wrist fractures. I feel Brunel prepared us really well for our first placement as we learnt theory first, which stood us in excellent stead when starting in the January of our second year.
