Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours)
Anthony Kharoufeh graduated from Monash University with a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) before enrolling into the Doctor of Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne. He looks forward to growing within the Action Rehab team.
Anthony has a strong interest in upper limb rehabilitation and seeks to help patients get back to doing what is important to them. This interest stemmed during his last clinical placement in the hand therapy department at Austin Health. During this experience, he realised the profound impact that losing function of the hand and upper limb can have on a person’s quality of life. Anthony particularly enjoys fabricating splints, educating patients about the nature of their upper limb injuries and developing tailored rehabilitation programs for them.
Anthony’s main motivation is seeing patients reach their therapy goals and improve their function to allow them to participate in meaningful activities. He seeks to ensure that his practice is person centred by involving the patient in goal setting and treatment plans.
Anthony is an avid soccer fan and enjoys interrupting his sleep schedule to watch Liverpool FC games. When he is not working, Anthony spends his time socialising with friends, playing soccer on the weekend and keeping active in the gym.
