The School of Physical Therapy at Western is the first university in Canada to offer a clinical master’s program in Manipulation designed to foster advanced manual therapy clinical skills, along with professional and research competencies.  This one-year program will be offered primarily by distance learning with eight weeks of on-site intensive manual and manipulative training spread out over the year. This program has received a full 6 year accreditation by the International Federation of Orthopedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT). This program also provides competencies for CPA clinical specialization.

Deadline for completed application is February 19, 2019. Applications will be accepted after this date if space allows.

Students are encouraged to work clinically (part-time) during the program in order to incorporate new knowledge and skills into their clinical practice, but can expect to devote 20 to 30 hours/week to program related activities (e.g., studying, reading, assignments etc).

Full MClSc Program:

  • Prepares physiotherapists to be advanced clinicians in the assessment and treatment of neuromuscular dysfunction and provide effective management of complex clinical conditions
  • Students participate in three mandatory residency periods at Western in September (3.5 weeks), February (3 weeks) and July (2 weeks)
  • Through clinical reasoning, evidence-based practice, and experienced orthopaedic practice, the physiotherapist will be able to use the skill of manipulation safely, effectively and appropriately in their own clinical practice
  • Successful graduates are eligible to apply as a fellow in the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (CAMPT)
  • Graduates obtain the research and professionalism competencies necessary for CPA specialization

Advanced Standing (FCAMPT):

  • Designed for registered fellows of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (CAMPT) possessing an Advanced Diploma in Manual and Manipulative Therapy and wanting to expand their professional and research interests.
  • Students participate in two required residency periods at Western (September - 3 days, July - 2 days)
  • Students in the Advanced Standing stream take fewer courses than those in the full program
