Our staff physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants are heavily involved in student education.

We also have several physiotherapy assistant student collective agreements including Humber College and Centennial College.

Our physiotherapist and physiotherapy assistants are also involved with teaching at academic sites and they continue their professional education through a variety of professional development courses.
