The Physiotherapy Education Accreditation Canada has reviewed the Progress Report of the Master of Science (Applied) in Physical Therapy at McGill University and has granted the program Accreditation Fully Compliant until May 2016.

All areas of concern raised in the 2010 accreditation report were appropriately addressed. In particular, multiple recent initiatives to improve the teaching and learning spaces (e.g. CyberMed, Hosmer and Davis renovations, teaching equipment upgrades) were critical in responding to the space deficiencies. 

Indeed it was stated that “the Council frequently repeated that they felt the Program’s submission was one of the best they had received in recent memory”. 

Congratulations to Dr. Judith Soicher and the PT faculty for their tremendous efforts and dedication to delivering a program of the highest standards.
