Ms. Sarah Atoui
The Thelma L. Adams Fellowship (Oncology)
I am a physiotherapist with a Master’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Quebec in Montreal. I am a now PhD candidate in the Department of Experimental Surgery at McGill University. My research project will be conducted in the Perioperative Program (POP) at the Montreal General Hospital. POP staff (a kinesiologist, a nutritionist, and a clinical psychologist) will work closely with me to prepare patients for surgery. My training at the MUHC will be of great value for my PhD, as I am already very familiar with the program and have experience in both the recruitment and data collection process of POP.
