Physiotherapists with the Clinical Specialist designation
What is Clinical Specialist?
Clinical Specialists are leaders in a specific area of practice of physiotherapy. These individuals have demonstrated advanced clinical competence, leadership, continued professional development and research within their specialty (CPA, 2019). To become a Clinical Specialist, individuals must be certified by the Physiotherapy Specialty Certification Board of Canada (PSCBC).
The Clinical Specialist Program is relatively new but growing quickly. To understand more about the program, visit the Canadian Physiotherapy Association website.
It is important to note that not all Clinical Specialists are specialized in the same area of practice. At this time, Physio Roots has not provided filters to differentiate Clinical Specialists.
