Here’s what some of our past students are saying:
“I came to the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Research Lab in 2013 looking to broaden my understanding and knowledge base about the scientific process and lung diseases. The University of British Columbia also has a high reputation for their academic standards, including their professors and research resources. I was not disappointed during my 2 years at the lab. Working closely under the direction of Dr. Camp and my fellow lab members, I learned an immense amount about how to conduct high quality, systematic research studies, as well as about obstructive and restrictive pulmonary diseases and how rehabilitation can have profound effects in this population in all holistic aspects of their health. Coming to the lab also gave me the opportunity to live in Vancouver downtown where I could really see and experience how beautiful the city is, but also see the need for improved pulmonary healthcare for many people living in the area. This made working on my research projects very rewarding, knowing that the work done within the lab can directly improve the lives of so many people in Vancouver and beyond.” – Chris Chan, MSC 2014
We have had many graduate students come through the PRRL. Please familiarize yourself with the Graduate Studies website for application details and Dr Camp’s work.
We are currently looking for graduate students interested working in: telehealth; First Nation and Indigenous populations; inpatient pulmonary rehabilitation; physical activity & chronic lung disease.
