In accordance with the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT) educational standards, the Orthopaedic Division’s Advanced Integrated Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Program (AIM) curriculum includes 150 hours of clinical mentorship.
Mentorship develops advanced level of clinical reasoning and communication skills enabling effective assessment and patient management and integration of evidence-informed practice. Clinical reasoning is at the core of clinical practice and an essential component of the mentoring process.
Mentors with the Orthopaedic Division have completed an internationally recognized advanced training program and are registered Fellows with the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists. Our mentors have access to current educational resources and continued professional development.
A directory of mentors is available in the member’s portal, which enables students to connect with individuals both virtually and in-person across the country.
Registration for mentors is free and open all year round to help students accumulate their required 150 hours of mentoring.
