Simply, This was the most exciting and pleasant experience of my life.
I enjoyed studying the physiotherapy major in well-structured program with knowledgeable & experienced faculty members. The program included the theoretical as well as the practical part to enhance our knowledge and understanding. The university atmosphere was friendly, supportive and encouraging to learn more beyond the scope. This experience made me confident and well prepared for the career life after graduation.

I chose to pursue a career as a Physical Therapist because I have always enjoyed working and being surrounded with athletes. I still remember it like it was yesterday. August 11th, 2010, when I got accepted into the four-year BSc PT program at University of Sharjah.
For me the journey started when I first attended the Human Biomechanics class where I realized that it had a whole different prospective & uniqueness to it. The studying content turned out to be far more interesting & clinically applicable by the time we advanced throughout our curriculum. Because I had the opportunity to be surrounded by absolutely amazing Professors and Clinical instructors, I was very well able to link my theory knowledge into the clinical aspect of physical therapy practice. Besides, I realized that a very good Human Anatomy background does make the life of a physiotherapy student much easier. At the end of my junior year, having completed Physiotherapy in Musculoskeletal, Neurological, Surgical and Cardiorespiratory conditions, I was able to apply for voluntary Physical Therapy work at different clinics across UAE. During my senior year, I was able to discover a whole new area of interest, Research. And it enabled me be to constantly work on adding to the current literature of knowledge.
Currently doing a Masters degree in Physical Therapy at McMaster University, I must point out that I have been truly blessed to have graduated from University of Sharjah with a BSc PT, class of 2014, and to have had the accompany of most inspiring, innovative, compelling and dedicated Professors and Clinical throughout my journey.
I chose to study Physiotherapy because I had an interest to study and work at the medical field.
At the beginning, I wasn't aware enough about this profession, but as the time passed I became familiar and was enjoying and doing very well in my study. I was very comfortable with the faculty, they were so helpful up-to-date, kind and really take care of each and every student in our batch. The courses and study material fulfilled what is required in the market.
May 2010 was my best day ever it was my graduation when I gained the harvest of the 4 years of hard working. After 8 months I was in my new career. It's now 4 years since I joined Al Baraha hospital and I am comfortable, excellent and representing my University in the work well. I am planning to do my post graduate study as soon as possible.

I am happy that God planned for me to study physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is one specialty from college of health since. I was interested to study it, because it was not popular in that time. Most of people have no idea what physiotherapy mean.
What is interesting about physiotherapy is that you can study different specialties at the same time. We studied orthopedic, neurology, women health, pediatric, pharmacology, management, cardiorespiratory. Also we had great time while doing clinical practice in many Government Hospitals in UAE. I gave us great chance to help us to choose where to work in the future. In addition we had the chance to see good number of causes during our practice. The clinical practice give us good experience in how to deal with patients, also it taught us how to be confident enough to deal with different causes. Studying in University of Sharjah, in College of health since give us good time , especially the facility team was so encouraging and supporting . The education team was so friendly, we get nice time while studying there. I advise locals to study physiotherapy, because still the number of local who works in this specialty in UAE is low. As we are old graduate we are always available to give support to students who study physiotherapy.

Enrolled at University of Sharjah in 2003 to study Physiotherapy as I planned to, hoping to be one of the best therapists ever. Gradually I started to develop to different levels of science with a great effort from the teaching staff that used the modern means of education based on the recent science of this major.
I graduated on 2009 to start the long job hunting journey which landed me first at Al Shabab Al Arabi Sports Club – Dubai and next in Rashid Hospital in January 2012 to continue my experience building trip receiving all the support from people around me.
