The CPA Clinical Specialty Program is a self-directed certification program to recognize physiotherapists who have demonstrated advanced clinical competence, leadership, continuing professional development and involvement in research. The program consists of a written portfolio submission and oral presentation that is assessed by a 3-person panel of peers.
The various components of the program allow candidates to demonstrate their professional competencies and development as a clinical specialist.
The program is available to all physiotherapists across Canada regardless of location or practice setting.
