Please see the M.P.T. Program in Physical Therapy.
On completion of all academic courses and clinical fieldwork, graduates in Physical Therapy are required to write the Physiotherapy Competency Examination (PCE, formerly PNE). Successful completion of the PCE is required for registration with the College of Physical Therapists of BC. Registration is required in order to practice physiotherapy in BC.
The Physical Therapy program at UBC is accredited by an external organization, and students must graduate from an accredited program in order to write the PCE.
Upon receipt of a license to practice, graduates in Physical Therapy are eligible for membership in the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) and its provincial branch, the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia (PABC).
