Dept of PT Hosts OIEPB Program

The Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto is the new host site for the Ontario Internationally Educated Physical Therapists Bridging (OIEPB) Program. The Bridging Program is designed to provide educational opportunities for physical therapists educated outside of Canada, who already possess specified qualifications, to develop the additional knowledge, skills and clinical reasoning required to meet Canadian entry-to-practice standards. The Bridging Program provides cultural and workplace orientation to facilitate success in the workplace.

Applications for May 2012 intake are now being accepted, and must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14, 2012. For full program, admission, and application information, visit the OIEPB webpage.

Funding for this program is provided by the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration with additional support from Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
