Over the years, Talbot Trail Physiotherapy has became a valuable training ground for medical students from around the country. In addition to getting real-life exposure to patients in a busy clinical setting, students get a first-hand look at the reality of patient care with a variety of medical conditions. Students have also mentioned that our clinics are unique with our interactions with Family Doctors, Orthopaedic surgeons, Rheumatologists and other healthcare specialties.
Medical students appreciate assignments in our clinical setting, as it illustrates how a multi-disciplinary medical team work together to get the best possible patient outcomes. With the best that technology has to offer, students can also witness how technology combines with superior therapy, exercise and other interventional techniques to help patients reach their optimum level of physical function in a friendly and caring atmosphere.
Take a look at some of our recent medical students at the clinic…
