Physical Therapy


Our Program

The Master of Science in Physical Therapy (MScPT) is a 24-month professional graduate program designed for students who have completed an undergraduate degree. We select candidates who are well-rounded and from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. Individuals who are compassionate, have excellent problem-solving abilities, strong people skills, and have a desire to engage in leadership activities, will find the study of physiotherapy to be an excellent fit and will flourish in this program.

Recognized as one of the top programs in Canada, students complete 18.75 FCE* through 30 weeks of full-time clinical education over 5 internships. Graduates are eligible to write the Physiotherapy Competency Examination (PCE), administered by the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators, which qualifies them to practise physical therapy in Canada. Graduates will be eligible to register in the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and the Colleges of Physiotherapy in all Canadian provinces.

Alumni Profile

Corey Grunberg, MScPT

Getting involved with student government was a very important part of my experience as a U of T PT student. Beginning the program during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic was a challenge; however, being a part of the student council allowed me to meet so many of my future colleagues and to engage with them in meaningful ways, even if from our remote environments on video calls.

I had an excellent experience in the PT program at Temerty Medicine, where I learned clinical skills, honed my critical reflexivity, and was encouraged to follow my passions to improve the world around me. In particular, I found the SPEC curriculum (social, political, ethical, and cultural features of PT) to be impactful on the way I view my position working in healthcare. Our discussions about intersectionality and social factors in providing care have made me more critical of my assumptions and how they may influence my work. As new grads entering the workforce, it is our responsibility to adapt our techniques to maintain culturally safe practice and advocate for the needs of our patients.

Currently, I am working as a Physiotherapist Resident with Sinai Health System at Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital in the Medical Rehabilitation unit. I am also a member of the planning committee for Queer Physiotherapy Collective, a newly formed group of queer PTs, PT Residents, and PT students focused on community building advocacy.
