Ivan Chiu









Ivan is currently in his fifth and final undergraduate year at UBC; if all goes well, he will be graduating with a BSc in Psychology and a BA in Philosophy. He hopes to enter medicine to become a paediatrician.

Meanwhile, he enjoys volunteering at Canuck Place Hospice, working as a behavioural interventionist , and biking around town.

One of the reasons he decided to volunteer here is that it helps give him a sense of perspective. This is important because it allows one to assess issues from different viewpoints – for example, examining spinal cord injury from the point of view of scientists and the community – which enhances empathy and understanding.
