Mission Statement

Mission of our School:

Excellence in teaching and research is the foundation and tradition of the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy at McGill University. The faculty educates professionals and, through research, generates the body of knowledge which guides our professions to advance the health, function and participation of individuals in society. The educational programs apply and promote principles of interprofessional education, evidence-based practice and knowledge exchange with the expectation that students become self-directed, life-long learners.  


Partnerships for Best Practices: Expanding the Scholarship of Practice Model:

The School of Physical & Occupational Therapy has built meaningful partnerships between our educators, researchers, the students, clinicians, decision-makers and health service consumers. These partnerships enable us to interweave theory, education, research and practice such that each element informs the other. This collaborative approach ensures that our teaching is evidence-informed and clinically meaningful, that our scientific discoveries are clinically relevant and that our practitioners are scholarly agents of change. Collectively we aim to improve the health and participation of all members of Quebec society through a scholarship of practice model.
