Prerequisite courses are permitted to be at the 1st and 2nd year level. We also recommend that applicants take courses in the life sciences/social sciences/humanities, as these subjects are most relevant to the MScPT program." https://www.physicaltherapy.utoronto.ca/admissions/faqs/

  3. Exercise, activity modification, education, and reassurance are some of our most powerful and impactful skills/tools that we have as physiotherapists.

  8. To echo the statements above: Just chill. PT school is very demanding, so just take this time to enjoy yourself.
  9. Hey! As you mentioned above, the $ value of a start-up clinic is going to vary tremendously by region, so it's tough to give a straight answer for that. However, to answer your second question: yes, we are taught some of the basics on how to go about starting a PT business.

  11. Hello, PT people! Anyone who's been through the process of studying/practicing for the written and clinical of the physiotherapy competency exam (PCE) understands the absolute grind associated with it.
