"Oh the directions they go!" Read about the career plans of our Physical and Health Education students as submitted by them at the time of their graduation.
[Note: The BPHE SSP was the "Teaching Stream" of the concurrent Physical and Health Education program.]
Note: In 2007-08, twenty-eight BPHE graduates from Spring 2007 returned to Queen's as follows: one student entered a MSC in Anatomy & Cell Biology; two students entered a MSC in Occupational Therapy; four students entered a MSC in Physical Therapy; fifteen students entered a BED program at the Faculty of Education; two students returned to upgrade from a BA to a BAH; two students returned to upgrade from a BSC to a BSCH; and, two students returned to pursue post-degree course work.
As of September 2007 I will be attending York University for Teacher's College. My plans for the future are to hopefully teach elementary school and perhaps travel abroad to teach.
E.A.B. BA MIN HIST, BPHE SSP
In September 2007, I will be beginning a MSC in Work Physiology
with Dr. Petersen at the University of Alberta. My research will be
focused on "work of breathing", working in occupational, athletic and
rehabilitation settings. My long term aspiration is to pursue a career
in a Medicine, hopefully in surgery.I also hope to continue as an
amateur coach and remain active in sport.
K.R.G. BSCH SSP LISC COMP, BPHE SPF
This fall I'll be attending Queen's University Teachers College
for Intermediate/Senior and plan on obtaining additional qualifications
with the desire to teach in small town rural schools. Hopefully I'll
get the opportunity to teach outdoor education some day.
D.L.S. - BSC GEN BIOL, BPHE SSP
This August, I will begin my medical training at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University. I have always wanted to be a doctor, so I am so incredibly excited to begin!
L.L.A. - BSC GEN LISC, BPHE SPF
I started my M.Sc in Anatomical Sciences at Queen's University
this past May. The program runs for 16 months straight and has an
emphasis on teaching anatomy at the undergraduate level. My thesis
project is going to be a cadaveric model of the human vascular system
that medical students can use to practice cardiac catheterizations. I am
not sure what career path to take once the program is over, but I am
interested in pursuing either medicine, physiotherapy, or teaching.
