I’ve been pretty quiet recently....and it’s been a pretty stressful time! So on Friday last week I had my PhD viva... this is the end point to 3.5 years of work and essentially involved sitting in front of 2 examiners and ‘defending’ my thesis for over 3 hours .... it was as scary as it sounds! The good news.... I survived...! The better news... I passed... with minor corrections.... which is pretty much the standard.... essentially I can now call myself a Dr.... but need to make a few changes before it’s officially signed off....
I wasn’t sure how I’d feel.... and apart from relief, I can’t say I feel any different... and essentially I’m not.... the last 3.5 years have been a massive learning curve that have made me a better physio.... so I can do more to help my patients, but does being able to call myself Dr change my abilities as a physio.... nope.... I will continue to grow and develop as a physio to ensure that I continue to provide the best care I can for my patients.
Onwards, upwards! :)
