Matthew Reichert, BASc
MPT Master Student School of Rehabilitation Scienc
Matt graduated from the U of S in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts and Science degree in Environment and Society which provided him with a background into the relationship between the health of human populations and the physical environments they interact with. As of the 2021-22 academic year, Matt will be in his second and final year of a Master of Physical Therapy degree. He believes that becoming a physical therapist will not only allow him to explore and understand the nuances of human health and functioning but will also give him the opportunity to educate people as to how they can shape their day-to-day environment in a way to better promote their overall health. Matt is currently performing a needs assessment of Physical and Occupational Therapy resources for the File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council and All Nations Healing Hospital in Saskatchewan. His goal is to work with Indigenous communities upon graduation and is using his research experience to inform his future practice to provide equitable services while remaining culturally sensitive and respectful.
