About Lisa Kibria
I am currently, a medical student in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Alberta (Canada). I also have a Bachelors of Medical Rehabilitation (Physical Therapy) from the University of Manitoba (Canada).
I moved to Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) to work as a physical therapist. As a practicing Physical Therapist, I had the opportunity to work in numerous large tertiary centers, in various private physiotherapy clinics such as a Women’s Health clinic and sports medicine clinics, and as the team lead therapist in a Chronic Pain and Spine Intervention Clinic. I have specialized in Chronic pain management and women's health. In addition, I have also attained my acupuncture license.
As a result of my work experiences, I have a greater understanding of the complexities of health care systems, health care administration, practice management and development of healthcare policies and procedures. These experiences have led me to develop a personal passion in improving access to primary health care and I would like to extend these interests towards a global perspective. I hope to get involved in various global health delivery models with specific interests in rehabilitation medicine, women’s health initiatives and chronic disease management.
