Physical Therapy

Clinical Education

Clinical Education is the practical application of academic coursework in a real life clinical setting. Under the mentorship and guidance of a licensed physical therapist, physical therapy students are able to put into practice the knowledge, skills and behaviours learned in the classroom. Students in the physical therapy program participate in 31 weeks of clinical education experiences in a wide range of practice settings and content areas including private musculoskeletal practices, rehabilitation facilities and acute care hospitals. Over the 28 month period, and by integrating the academic and clinical components of the MSc PT program, students begin the professional socialization and learn what it means to be a physical therapist.
