Unit 10 Clinical Skills Labs Volunteer

We are currently inviting volunteers to participate virtually in the clinical skills labs in unit 10, (Advanced Neuromusculoskeletal PT Practice) in the MScPT program at the University of Toronto.  The primary focus of Unit 10 is on musculoskeletal health and runs from January 4 – March 25, 2022.  This course builds on the knowledge and critical thinking skills in other units in the MScPT curriculum.  For those of you who have contributed to the program in the past, we want to extend our thanks for your time. The students benefit so much from your experience and expertise, and we greatly appreciate the time and energy you put into teaching with us.

We are currently inviting clinicians to connect to clinical skills labs virtually. Details on this process will be provided in the coming weeks. To participate you will require a device with google chrome and zoom installed as well as access to reliable internet.

Similar to the past, a typical lab session consists of demonstration of skills by an instructor, clinical reasoning problems and time for students to practice the skills and work through problems. A central component of these lab sessions is providing feedback to students on their hands-on and clinical reasoning skills.

For those of you less familiar with our new curriculum, the main highlight you’ll notice in the lab sessions compared to the past curriculum is that regional clinical skills (eg hip clinical skills) will be driven by specific cases rather than presenting a list of clinical skills in the absence of context. Clinician volunteers will be provided with the same lab notes that students are given.

Attached are the dates for the Unit 10 lab sessions. To submit your offers, please fill in the survey below before December 12, 2021 at 5 pm.

THANK YOU again for your consideration of our requests.  We will be in touch to confirm the labs for which you have been scheduled and to provide instructions on how to access course information online via Quercus and how to join the lab virtually. We look forward to working with you in the upcoming academic year.

Please feel free to contact Euson Yeung via email at euson.yeung@utoronto.ca  if you have any questions.
