Adnan Asger Ali Clinician | Owner | Health Advocate
Show Notes

Adnan has a couple of unique physio-moulding stories. Firstly, Adnan grew up in KL Malaysia where his parents owned a sports store, and afternoons after school were spent 'testing'  all the sports gear. Secondly, his younger brother drowned in a fish pond, but fortunately, Adnan was able to pull him out and he was later revived in hospital. 

Adnan has sped through an undergraduate degree, 3 Master's qualifications and co-owns two clinics with 25+ staff. He has also been heavily involved in committees, boards and elite sports for a decade. 

During our conversation, Adnan reflects on;

  • when is the ideal time to start a Masters qualification 
  • the benefits of being involved in committees
  • his internal motivator 
  • his standard answer to a request
  • his #1 hot tip for building your list in a competitive practice
