Show Notes

This conversation was recorded with Dr Linda Khong while she was in Singapore, celebrating the Chinese New Year.

During our conversation I was struck by how Linda has traversed so many aspects of our profession; clinician + academic, private + public practice and Asian + Australian culture. 

Linda explains how she started out with the Singaporean family's dream of a degree in business and the goal of making a pot of gold when a couple of experiences changed the direction of her professional and personal life, and how they continue to be core principles today.

For young Physiotherapists considering where they want to be in 5 or 10 years professionally, Linda has some sage words of experience to share + she has a few life truths that are also worth absorbing.

A lovely conversationalist, I hope you will enjoy this delightful Physio+10 episode with Linda as much as I did.

Thank you for listening.
