Clinical Appointments

Let’s Work Together 

All occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech & language pathologists receive clinical education as part of their training programs. Many therapists support their profession by providing clinical education opportunities for the next generation of clinicians. The Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine offers a clinical appointment system to recognize these committed professionals and provide them with support in their roles as clinical educators. This mutual support and recognition ensures that together we are providing our professions with competent new graduates.
