Mia - Physical Therapy Student Ambassador

My name is Mia. I am from Lexington, SC and attended Clemson University where I studied Biological Sciences. I grew up in Taiwan and moved to South Carolina when I was 11.  There is a huge difference between the two places, but I cannot imagine myself growing up and living in a better place than SC!     

One thing all applicants should know is that the MUSC and CHP professors are very helpful and are all willing to use their resources to help you advance in your career. Charleston is an awesome place to go to school.  You will get so many opportunities for having the hospital right next door and living near the beach is a definite plus. 

I chose MUSC because of the faculty.  When I came to visit MUSC the faculty and staff here really cared about my success both academically while I am in school and also my career upon graduation.  I also got to see the relationships between the teachers and students, something that I have never experienced as an undergrad.  I chose PT because you get to work with a wide variety of patients and you get to go through the entire rehabilitation process and build a special bond with them that is rare in the current health care society.
