Supervised Practice

The College of Physiotherapists of Manitoba adopted the Supervised Practice Program for:

  • New Canadian graduates
  • All Internationally Educated Physiotherapists (IEPs)
  • Re-entry Candidates

Clinical supervision is a formal process of professional support and learning which enables individual practitioners to develop knowledge and competence, assume responsibility for their own practice and enhance consumer protection and the safety of care in complex clinical situations.

Supervised Practice ends when the Exam Candidate successfully completes the Clinical Component.
