Description:Graduates of the Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) program promote 'Movement and Function for Life'. The first graduates, in 1964, received a "certificate course in Physical Medicine Therapy". Following multiple shifts through the years, the first class of the MPT program graduated in 2006. In 2007, the School of Rehabilitation Sciences at UBC was dissolved and The Division of Physical Therapy became the Department of Physical Therapy in the Faculty of Medicine.

Using the Lifespan approach, the major areas of study in the 26 month MPT program include: basic sciences, clinical decision making, clinical practice (musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiorespiratory), exercise and movement sciences, and rehabilitation research. Additionally, students experience a total of 1080 'hands-on' clinical hours over six clinical placements in diverse aspects of clinical care. The evidence-based curriculum is structured to promote critical thinking, develop problem solving skills, promote teamwork and collaboration, and empower students to be lifelong learners.
