Meet our student

Ms Sarah Carter

Course of study:
Bachelor of Health Sciences and Master of Clinical Prosthetics and Orthotics

What do you like most about your campus (facilities, study resources, social life, entertainment)?

This is the only university in Australia where I can study my chosen field however La Trobe is a fantastic place to study due to its open plan, ample space, sporting facilities and events including the weekly market. The health sciences lecture theatres are modern and comfortable, making learning here much easier for students and its an easy tram trip from the CBD.

What are the best things about the course and about La Trobe, for you?

The lecturers and tutors at La Trobe, especially those associated with P & O, are extremely helpful and always happy to listen to student issues. There are computer resources available at the National Centre for Prosthetics and Orthotics and the technical labs/patient assessment rooms at the clinic are of the highest standard as they are used for real patients daily.

What are the best things about the course and about La Trobe, for you?

My placement at the Royal Children's Hospital was a fantastic experience. I was able to get a really good idea of what my future career would involve and had a few hands-on experiences which improved my confidence when dealing with patients. La Trobe organises placements at great facilities, all of which are well known and respected in the P & O profession.

Where do you see the course taking you after you graduate?

I hope to work in a leading facility in Australia, as well as spend time travelling and working overseas with underprivileged families and individuals who have lost limbs.
