Welcome message from site

We would like to extend our warmest welcome to any potential students who choose to complete placements with us here in the beautiful Comox Valley. The combination of learning and recreational opportunities will make your experience memorable and enjoyable. Exposure to private practice outpatients, multidisciplinary teams, community health, ergonomics and occupational medicine will provide you with a well-rounded experience that will give you a flavour of many of the facets of the world of rehabilitation.

We are close to the ocean and just up the road from Mount Washington. Do a road trip and you can get a day of surfing in as well! Be careful. If you have never been here before you may never want to leave!
