“Dr. McGrath’s passion for biomechanics is palpable from the very first lecture,” says Arthur Masiukiewicz ’24. “He truly wants to make sure that every student understands the material. He executes this by encouraging students to ask questions in every lecture, and by prompting students with questions of his own to spark discussion of the material.”
