My clinical placements were definitely a highlight during my degree. Taking the knowledge I learnt over my first three years and putting it into practice at some of the best exercise physiology practices in Queensland was extraordinary. I was exposed to a wide variety of clinical conditions and clients, which gave me invaluable learning experiences.
