Physical Therapy

Student Research

During units 6, 10 and 12, our MScPT students complete a group research project as part of the required program curriculum. This component is designed to integrate practice in physical therapy with research and program evaluation. The focus of these units is on developing student’s skills in critical appraisal, critical thinking and problem solving. Students complete the research project under supervision of a practitioner and an academic faculty. Projects are presented at our annual Research Day, which usually occurs in late July annually.


T-Space showcases and preserves the scholarly work of U of T faculty and selected students. T-Space is established by the Library to support the dissemination of knowledge by the University community. For more information take their guided tour or browse their marketing materials.
