Supervising Students

Students in the Master’s of Physical Therapy (MPT) program complete 30 weeks of clinical education. This consists of six five-week (180 hours) clinical placements covering a broad set of learning settings (acute, chronic disease management, rehabilitation, community health, and outpatient).  Students have exposure to a broad spectrum of physical therapy services (e.g. musculoskeletal, cardio-respiratory, neuromuscular). The clinician community is critical to these placements and to ensuring students are able to progress through the program. The mentorship of MPT students also brings benefits to clinical educators.
