The Buddy Program (founded by Alex Nguyen in 2017 and sponsored by HKAPSA) is designed to make your first year transition into the program as smooth as possible. We've assembled the greatest team of passionate Mentors who are current students or graduates of the Health, Kinesiology and Applied Physiology Program who know exactly what you're going through and what lies ahead. We try our best to assign to you a Mentor who is studying in the specialty you are interested in (AT, KCEP, Honours, Major), and/or has the same career interest as you and even hobbies!
