Brittany McCulloch has returned to her hometown to complete physiotherapy work placement.December 12, 2012 4:50am
Former Deniliquin woman Brittany McCulloch is completing her physiotherapy work placement at Deniliquin Hospital.
The 22 year-old is working alongside Deniliquin physiotherapist Paul Strongman.
Brittany is studying at Flinders University in Adelaide for a Masters in Physiotherapy.
She already has a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science at The University of Ballarat.
It was in Ballarat where Brittany said she realised she wanted to pursue a career in physiotherapy.
This is the student’s first physio work placement, and she is in her fifth and final week.
‘‘It’s really good but it’s pretty full on trying to remember everything and putting it into practice,’’ she said.
Mr Strongman said Brittany has been excellent.
‘‘She’s been assessing patients. In Echuca she observed orthopaedic surgery.
‘‘We offer a range of different things during placement so it’s fairly representative of a rural physio,’’ he said.
Brittany said she would take a lot away from the experience
‘‘I’ve learnt so much, and anything I don’t cover with the patients Paul teaches me.’’
She is due to finish her studies in November 2013 and isn’t sure where she would like her first physiotherapist appointment to be.
While Brittany said she misses Deni, she said she enjoys living in Adelaide.
Brittany is the daughter of Craig and Wendy McCulloch.
