Rehabilitation Medicine

The Glen Sather Clinic offers six-week placements to physical therapy students in either year of their program.

The student will be placed with one primary clinical instructor working within the clinic during their CI's regular clinic hours. This could range from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. In addition, the student will have the opportunity to be involved with multidisciplinary clinics that currently operate in the clinic, including the ACL Clinic, Acute Knee Clinic, Functional Knee Injury Clinic, and Shoulder Clinic. These clinics offer an opportunity for students to work alongside physical therapists, sports medicine physicians, and orthopedic surgeons.

In addition, the clinic holds regular educational rounds students can attend, as well as opportunities to shadow with a certified orthotist and strength and conditioning specialists at the Alberta Sport Development Centre.


If you are an international student wishing to apply for a placement, please apply through the Canadian Council of Physiotherapy University Programs.

If you are an out-of-province student, please apply through your university's placement coordinator.
