Occupational and physical therapy seats en route to northern BC

May 27, 2019

The University of British Columbia has received $2.2M from the provincial government to expand its Master of Physical Therapy program in partnership with the University of Northern British Columbia. A release states that the partners will also receive $1.1M for a similar initiative involving UBC’s occupational therapy program. According to the release, the money is part of an effort to provide more seats for students in the north. "Expanding these programs in Prince George will improve patient-health outcomes for Northerners for years to come," said Dermot Kelleher, Dean of Medicine at UBC. "Together with UNBC, we are grateful to the government for making this expansion a reality." BC
