I realized that finding the right program that best fit my interest and focus on the “bigger picture” was important to fulfill my goals. The Department of Rehabilitation Science has an excellent reputation for performing high-quality scientific research. I chose to come to Mason because I knew I would receive the support I needed to develop as a scholar. I was drawn to the interdisciplinary nature of the rehabilitation science program, and my research interest in pulmonary rehabilitation is extremely aligned with the program. Professors work with students one-on-one and take an active interest in their progress. The program has given me a chance to prove myself and I'm beginning to really enjoy the process of scientific research.
