student-profile-khuuAnne Khuu: “Sargent is a great place to see interdisciplinary collaboration in practice. OTs and PTs problem-solve alongside anthropologists and engineers, complementing each other’s expertise. Clinical application is emphasized in both the classroom and research lab. Professors introduce material to give you a foundation of how things work, but then they challenge you to apply that knowledge by presenting clinical scenarios. In the lab, research is data-driven and patient-oriented. The goal is to translate what we learn in the lab into something tangible we can use to help people.”
