Each year, we collaborate with Master level students and Faculty members from the McGill School of Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy to develop clinical projects based on clinical questions from our team members. We’ve had some great results from this collaboration in the past years and look forward to seeing the projects develop this year!

The results will be presented in August 2023. Stay posted!

Congratulations to clinicians who are participating in co-supervising the projects this year and thank you to McGill Faculty members for working with us on these projects!
