All physiotherapists in British Columbia are university graduates. After graduation, many educational opportunities are available to physiotherapists willing to upgrade their knowledge, improve their technical skills, and advance their understanding of body mechanics beyond the scope of the standard university curriculum.
University courses are interlinked to provide a thorough understanding of the mechanics of injuries, treatment techniques provided by therapists, and total injury rehabilitation concepts. Physiotherapists who succeed at this level become either Fellows or Residents of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy, which allows them to incorporate spinal and peripheral joint manipulation into the treatment.
