Donate to the PTRC
In response to the increased number of students’ burden on our current clinical placement sites, the Department opened The Physical Therapy and Research Clinic in September 2019. This clinic provides rich placement opportunities for the MPT students where they are involved in both clinical care of patients and research projects thereby fostering the provision of evidence-informed care to patient populations in the community.
The clinic has experience and expertise in managing many conditions and treating a diverse client population, emphasizing helping individuals who cannot afford typical physiotherapy rates and are not eligible for rehabilitation services through government-funded/hospital programs. Funding is needed to continue to pay for supervision so these students can apply their classroom knowledge in a clinical setting and help clients who would not otherwise have access to care.
