McGill Physical Therapy (PT) and Occupational Therapy (OT) students finishing their undergrad (U3) or their qualifying year (QY) receive nametags that identify them as McGill OT or PT students at this milestone ceremony. The ceremony marks the transition from classroom learning to clinical experience as students begin their clinical placements wearing their name tags.  

Director and Associate Dean Laurie Snider, OT, PhD, opened the event, and welcomed Dr. Jean-Pierre Farmer, MDCM, Associate Vice-President and Vice-Dean (Health Affairs).  Honoured and insightful speakers included clinicians Fatima Khodary, OT, Reshmi Varghese, PT, and Lynn Gillespie, PT, as well as students Kasra Borjian (M1 OT) and Aviva Wiseman (M1 PT). 

Wishing all students continued success in their academic journeys to becoming physical and occupational therapists!
