Physical Therapy


The Department of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia provides the professional education necessary for entry level physical therapy practice through rigorous scholarly activity, high standards of instruction and creative learning opportunities. This Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) program incorporates a strong theoretical foundation that supports current and future practice of the profession. Graduates of the program are experts in movement and function for life in a wide variety of settings and contribute to the health of Canadians through cost‐effective clinical approaches, evidence‐informed practice, client‐centered care, and a commitment to health promotion and disease prevention. As home to British Columbia’s only entry‐to‐practice Physical Therapy program, the Department of Physical Therapy at UBC is committed to providing first‐class educational opportunities for aspiring and practicing physical therapists. As well, the Department of Physical Therapy participates in two interdisciplinary post graduate programs consisting of an online Master of Rehabilitation Science (MRSc) program and a Master’s of Science (MSc)/PhD program in Rehabilitation Science.
