The Master of Science in Physical Therapy (MScPT) is a 24-month professional pro​gram leading to entry to practice. The program is accredited by Physiotherapy Education Accreditation Canada. Graduates will be eligible to write the Physiotherapy Competency Examination (PCE), administered by the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators, which qualifies them to practice physical therapy in Canada. Graduates will be eligible to register in the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and the Colleges of Physiotherapy in all Canadian provinces.

The Master of Science in Physical Therapy, Advanced-Standing Option allows eligible physical therapists with a bachelor's degree in physiotherapy to acquire the master's degree in an online environment with one on-campus residency. There is a strong focus on research and best practices integrated throughout the program.

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.

Overview

Our Master of Science program is designed to prepare individuals to conduct research independently and in collaboration with other scientists. Students will investigate an area of research relevant to rehabilitation through critical analysis of problems related to basic sciences, clinical practice, or to development of theory.

Rehabilitation Sciences constitutes the study of physical and occupational performance with special emphasis on individuals with impairments and disabilities. It encompasses the three dimensions of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (body structure and function, activity and participation) and thus spans the individual, community and society. Our faculty have active research programs that cover this diverse spectrum.

Our faculty have an excellent record of scholarly productivity, receiving funding from provincial and national research granting agencies. Over 20 graduate students from a broad range of backgrounds including occupational therapy, physical therapy, recreation therapy, social sciences, human kinetics, and engineering have graduated from our program. These students have authored numerous peer-reviewed journal publications and won various scholarships and awards.

Graduate students will have the opportunity to study in state of the art laboratories, such as the UBC MacDonald Research Laboratory at St. Paul’s Hospital, the Thoracic Outlet Syndrome Research Clinic in Kelowna, the McGregor-Hudson Physical Therapy Research Lab, the Margaret Hood Occupational Therapy Lab, the Post Polio Research Lab, the Rehabilitation Research Laboratory at GF Strong Rehab Centre and the ICORD building. Office space and computer terminals are also available for students within the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy as well as at the Department of Physical Therapy.

Courses offered by our team of internationally renowned scholars and educators help students learn critical evaluation of the scientific literature relevant to rehabilitation, analysis of theoretical constructs through of quantitative and qualitative methods of inquiry, and the design, execution and presentation of their results.
