This course is designed for experienced postgraduate physiotherapists working within neuro-musculoskeletal clinical practice. It is also suitable if you have studied manual therapy at a high level on clinically-based courses, such as with the International Maitland Teachers Association (IMTA). You can have relevant clinically focussed learning recognised and the credits transferred via a recognition of prior learning (RPL) process.

The course enables you to advance your clinical, therapeutic and reasoning skills within the field of neuro-musculoskeletal practice. You engage in debate and develop skills which enhance your ability to facilitate service development and enhance patient care. Successful completion of the course leads to the opportunity to meet the requirements for registration with the Musculoskeletal Association of chartered Physiotherapists (MACP).

The course is structured around two core manual therapy modules that focus on the upper and lower quadrant. The upper quadrant includes key aspects of evidence, theory and reasoning that inform clinical practice. The lower quadrant considers different dysfunctions and also different principles that guide our practice. These modules develop and challenge your clinical handling and reasoning skills.Together these modules form a Postgraduate Certificate in Manual Therapy.

At postgraduate diploma level you choose optional modules relevant to your personal and professional development. This enables you to either increase the breadth of your learning or maintain a focus on developing clinical skills relevant to your physiotherapy practice dependent on your goals. One module which allows you to continue developing advanced clinical skills is the MACP clinical placement in neuro-musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

Your assessments are designed to fulfil the aims and learning outcomes of modules, as well as replicate the challenges you may face within your clinical field. This provides authentic experience and the opportunity to develop skills that are directly transferable to practice.

You learn from enthusiastic tutors including academics who have physiotherapy research published in peer reviewed journals. This includes Dr Stephen May, who is an internationally renowned physiotherapist who has contributed to several well known textbooks including the key text on the McKenzie Approach 'Lumbar Spine: Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy'.

Distance learning study

To aid your professional and clinical development we use a range of online learning and teaching activities, such as interactive tutor and peer group discussions. Experienced tutors also provide regular personal guidance and feedback.

Recognition for prior learning

Physiotherapy students who have successfully completed 2a, 2b, and 3 International Maitland Teachers Association (IMTA) modules can gain credits against specific modules from the MSc Manual Therapy. This can be achieved through the recognition for prior learning (RFPL) process. For more information read our IMTA guidance.

Course structure

The masters (MSc) is achieved by successfully completing the postgraduate diploma plus dissertation (180 credits).

The postgraduate certificate (PgCert) is achieved by successfully completing manual therapy for the upper quadrant and manual therapy for the lower quadrant (60 credits).

The postgraduate diploma (PgDip) is achieved by successfully completing the postgraduate certificate plus 60 credits to include project design and planning (120 credits).

Core modules

  • Manual therapy for the upper quadrant (30 credits)
  • Manual therapy for the lower quadrant (30 credits)

The Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) Program at UBC is a twenty-five month professional program leading to entry to practice and is accredited by Physiotherapy Education Accreditation Canada (PEAC). In the UBC MPT program, students experience the breadth and depth of the profession with 45 weeks of academic course work and a total of 1080 “hands-on” clinical hours. Students experience a diverse, inclusive, and evidence-based curriculum. The course content is updated annually to reflect recent research findings and current best practice. The teaching and learning practices in the MPT Program are based on recent education research and best practice in adult teaching and learning.

The MPT Program embraces innovative teaching and learning approaches that align with the curricular vision and goals, including technology-enhanced teaching and learning and simulation; interprofessional learning; and community-based learning. Faculty members within the Department are acknowledged throughout Canada, and internationally, as leaders in Physical Therapy research and include a Canada Research Chair, as well as Michael Smith and CIHR Scholars. The MPT Program is taught by a complement of faculty members and expert clinicians, with high instructor-to-student ratios in clinical skills courses.

Students experience six clinical placements in diverse aspects of clinical care such as acute, outpatient, geriatrics, interprofessional (including rural and paediatrics), and rehabilitation for various populations such as stroke, spinal cord injury, head injury and others (as well as an option for a research placement). In addition, in partnership with Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health, UBC can place students in the only two student-led physiotherapy clinics in the province, which provide an outstanding opportunity for peer learning and interprofessional experience. Students have access to a vast number of clinical placement location possibilities in British Columbia ranging from large city centres to small communities. Students at the senior level have the option to request one “Out-of-Province” or International placement. Clinic site visits and patient interface workshops are offered throughout the curriculum exposing students to real patients while learning their theoretical skills (neuro; pediatric; shadow placements).

The entry-level MPT program is located in a state-of-the-art facility on the campus of the University of British Columbia in beautiful Vancouver. Cameras and large screen monitors in labs allow for all students to have the best seat in the house when observing demonstrations of even the most detailed subjects. Large lab spaces accommodate two students for every physiotherapy plinth. Additionally, students have access to a modern, well-equipped exercise gym in which to learn exercise testing and prescription.

Program Overview

Physical therapists specialize in the assessment and treatment related to movement. Common movement disorders result from impairment of the neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, respiratory or cardiovascular systems. Following assessment of their clients, physical therapists often use physical agents such as therapeutic exercise, heat, cold, and electrical stimulation to increase muscle strength and function, reduce pain, promote general health and fitness, and prevent disability. As specialists in movement dysfunction, physical therapists also provide expertise in human mobility, carefully analyzing gait patterns and prescribing treatment regimens or devices (such as braces, crutches, or wheelchairs) to enable clients to move independently through their environments.

The M.P.T. degree provides the professional education necessary to obtain a license to practice physical therapy. It differs from the advanced or research M.Sc. in Rehabilitation Sciences, which prepares practitioners with advanced research skills and requires completion and defense of a thesis.
