Hina Tariq – Clinical Academic Doctorate student

Hina Tariq

“After qualifying as a physiotherapist, I gained experience in clinical and academic settings separately.

“But when I joined academia, I realised I might lose my clinical skills gradually because of the lack of clinical exposure. Therefore, I started looking for an opportunity that could help me progress in both areas concurrently.

“The Clinical Academic Doctorate (CAD) was the perfect programme for me, which allowed me to polish my clinical and research skills simultaneously. The exposure to patients also helped me explore and understand my research area in depth from a clinical perspective.

“It is the best opportunity for professionals who wish to pursue their careers as an academic without giving up on the clinical practice. Clinical academics can make a significant impact in healthcare by providing the best possible care for the patients through evidence-based clinical decision making.”
