A physical therapy program offered in partnership between the University of British Columbia and the University of Northern British Columbia will soon have space for 20 more students in Surrey, thanks to a $24.9M investment from the Government of British Columbia. The funding has been used to purchase new space in Surrey for teaching, laboratories, and offices. The location will open in 2023 and will support the province’s plan to address the region’s need for physical therapists. “The new site also paves the way for future expansion of other UBC health-professional programs, such as occupational therapy and midwifery in collaboration with health partners to better serve the needs of students, patients and communities,” said UBC VP of Health Dermot Kelleher.
