Paulina Wegrzyn, MScPT, graduated from Western University in 2014 with a BA in Classical Studies and a Minor in Greek and Roman Archaeology, and from the University of Toronto in 2019 with her Masters in Physical Therapy. Since graduation, she has focused her clinical practice in the areas of pelvic health and outpatient orthopaedics. Her humanities background helps inform and facilitate her biopsychosocial approach to treatment. She strongly believes that a background in the humanities fosters creativity, empathy, and critical thinking in rehabilitation professionals.
