The Masters in Physiotherapy Program offered at McMaster University is a two-year program in which problem-based, small group, self-directed learning is integrated with academic and clinical education. Students are prepared to practice in a variety of roles and diverse practice environments by drawing on the basic sciences as well as the social and behavioural sciences in order to understand the underlying principles of therapy. On completion of the program, students will have developed knowledge, skills, and professional behaviours that prepare them for mindful, ethical practice and apply their knowledge and skills in an evidence-based way to clients, patients, systems and organizations.

"McMaster provides a unique learning experience that allows students to acquire the skills necessary to learn the required material in school, but also to become life long learners. McMaster's use of problem-based learning assists with preparation for the ‘real world' of physiotherapy. The program is very practical, with ‘patients' coming to labs to allow students to practice and learn from one another. Even the education is unique - the tutors and staff are educators without being ‘professors' or giving lectures."

Maggie, PT Class of 2010

Gaining clinical experience during one's education as part of Master of Science in Physiotherapy at McMaster is by far one of the major strengths of the program.  Not only do students have the opportunity to gain clinical experience and establish professional partnerships, they also have the opportunity to travel. The Northern Studies Stream, in collaboration with the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, is a remarkable resource for students that benefit directly from a period of study in the Thunder Bay region.
