The University of Toronto Department of Physical Therapy seeks to advance the teaching, science and practice of physical therapy as an essential part of individual health and inclusive, flourishing communities. One of our strategic priorities is strengthening our shared scientific purpose. Our goal is to continually strengthen our already exceptional science, while advancing its social impact. We will develop a shared focus for research and knowledge translation in physical therapy that supports function, health, well-being and societal participation, innovative approaches to practice, and models that foster greater access to high quality care.
The research activity also supports the research and learning of the MScPT student in a number of ways:
- MScPT Research Projects
- Curricular content (incorporating research results so that students have the most current evidence that is relevant to practice)
- Curricular evaluation
- Development of cases and unique training opportunities.
