Dr. Camp’s teaching responsibilities in the MPT program is dedicated to the year-long research/quality improvement project course. Dr. Camp supervises MSc and PhD students in the Rehabilitation Sciences, Experimental Medicine, and Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Programs.


The primary aim of the UBC Pulmonary Rehabilitation Research Laboratory is to develop novel, patient-oriented strategies to improve physical activity and health outcomes of people with chronic lung disease, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Dr. Camp’s research has two main themes:

Pulmonary rehabilitation for hospitalized patients with an acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD); and

Pulmonary tele-rehabilitation in Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities (telehealth strategies to promote lung health, exercise and chronic disease management).

Dr. Camp is currently recruiting MSc and PhD students who are interested in pursuing graduate studies in one of the two themes above. Interested candidates should visit the lab website at for more details about the research environment.
