Until further notice we are going to be closed until Friday, May 1st, 2020 in keeping with the guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada and Nova Scotia Public Health websites.  As things change and new information is being provided on an hourly basis, we may be open sooner or later than this date. With the current recommendations through the various public health agencies, the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, and the provincial section, it is with great regret that we will be moving forward this the following actions regarding development courses:

•    SPC First/Professional Responder for Sport & Healthcare Professionals: Cancelled ​(Course contact: Joseph Ghosn PT)
•    Acupuncture Canada’s Dry Needling Level 1: Postponed until August 2020 - dates will be finalized within the coming weeks. (Course contact: Kyle Crosby PT)

Dalhousie University has shut down operations to non-essential services, so, for this reason, we will be in limited contact and are working remotely to settle our future courses for the time being. For those who have registered and made payments, we will reimburse them as soon as we return to our workplace, as we do not have access to our payment systems.

To our course collaborators (Sport Physiotherapy Canada & Acupuncture Canada) we would like to extend our thanks to your team and hope that we can continue to work together in the future when the current health risks are better controlled. We look forward to continuing education hosted by the Dalhousie Physiotherapy Clinic.
