Hi I'm Mackenzie, a second year BSc physiotherapy student on an MSK outpatient placement at Mile End Hospital. Placement was an amazing opportunity for me to solidify my knowledge and practice my manual techniques on a variety of patients. Mile End had an amazing team and I loved being part of it. My case load was 75% shoulder injuries with a few lower backs sprinkled throughout but there was a lot of diversity in the patients I was seeing. Brunel set me up with the necessary knowledge, creating a solid foundation of manual skills that aided me throughout my placement when assessing and treating my patients.
