Lizzy Avazian, UCSF PT Student Intern
Lizzy was born and raised in Irvine, California and completed her bachelors degree in Health Science with a minor in Nutrition at Chapman University in 2017. Currently, she is a first year student in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program at UCSF/SFSU. She is passionate about the practice of physical therapy as it combines her love of the human body with her desire to help others.
Lizzy enjoys working with patients to help them achieve their functional and physical goals, and looks forward to continuing to learn from fellow clinicians as well as her patients. During her first year at UCSF/SFSU, she has developed a deeper appreciation for the complexity of the human body and the direct impact physical therapy can have on a patient’s life. In her spare time, she loves activities that get her out in the sun like playing soccer and running, and always enjoys trying new food.
