Our Students Say ...

Here's what some of our current and past students have to say about attending the Physical Therapy program at the University of Manitoba...

The MPT program is intense, challenging but also a lot of fun. The program teaches us something new every day. It’s so cool to finally be learning specific physiotherapy knowledge and skills after spending years completing a Bachelor degree. The program gave me so many opportunities to grow as a person. It gave me all kinds of exposure to the many areas that physical therapy can help people. It gave me friends that I will keep for a lifetime and a career that I love.

Kaylee McLachlin, Class of 2019




I chose the University of Manitoba because the Master of Physical Therapy program here provides a unique learning experience that allows students to grow into lifelong learners. The close-knit academic and clinical community provides students with unparalleled support, while providing the opportunity to establish professional affiliations within the broader community.

Heather Sandu, Class of 2015

As a student physiotherapist at the U of M I have had the pleasure of witnessing the faculty’s continuous dedication and commitment to the profession and to us as future colleagues. It can go without saying that a family has formed within this group of staff and students and I am privileged to be a part of it.

Renée Funk, Class of 2013

The PT program has exceeded my expectations. A very tight-knit student community and close relationships with dedicated instructors has made my student experience here very fulfilling. I am very excited about the many opportunities this profession will provide for me.


Jon Mudry, Class of 2010


As a physiotherapist, I not only get a chance to see and do a wide variety of different things in any given work day, but it is also a profession that has allowed me the opportunity to work and live within many different cultures. The University of Manitoba not only provided me with a strong clinical and knowledge base, but the school and faculty have been more than supportive since I have graduated.”
