Vision of the MScPT Graduates
The Masters of Physical Therapy program at the University of Alberta graduates are prepared to meet the current and future challenges of client-centered, evidence-informed, interprofessional practice. They represent tomorrow's professional leaders.
Expected Outcomes for Graduates
Short Term: The immediate objective of the program is to provide students with physical therapy skills that meet the workplace demands of diverse and changing healthcare environments. In addition to clinical competencies, entry-level practitioners need effective strategies for autonomous practice, evidence informed decision making and outcome and program evaluation. They need graduate level research evaluation skills that they can apply to the client in day-to-day clinical practice.
Long Term: The longer term objective is to graduate entry-level physical therapists with life-long learning skills who will continually monitor and modify their practice to ensure efficacious, cost effective physical therapy care to people of Alberta, Canada and the global community.
The MScPT Program is a year-round, full-time program and can be completed within 30 months of study. All Canadian entry-level PT programs graduate physiotherapy generalists and are not programs of specialization. National entry-level competencies must be acquired in all practice areas (musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, neurology, oncology, pediatrics, etc.) by the end of the program.
