Are you interested in expanding your career potential and experiencing Canada at the same time? The Advanced Clinician Practitioner in Arthritis Care (ACPAC) Program is offered through the Office of Continuing Professional Development at the Temerty Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, and the Schroeder Arthritis Institute at University Health Network. ACPAC is an award-winning clinical-academic program that prepares experienced Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Nurses and Chiropractors from across Canada and beyond (including Ireland) for extended practice roles, including the diagnosis and management of patients with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions.  Many ACPAC graduates are employed in Advanced Practice Roles in orthopaedics and rheumatology. Delivery format of the ACPAC Program has evolved to include 2 weeks in-person and 3 weeks virtual live learning, with interval asynchronous on-line learning and clinical placements.  Applications are now being accepted for the 2021-22 academic year.  Please visit the ACPAC Program website (acpacprogram.ca) and click on the Admissions tab for application details.  The next program runs from October 2021 to June 2022. Enrollment is limited to maximize learning. Dr. Amanda Steiman, Rheumatologist and Dr. Christian Veillette, Orthopaedic Surgeon are co-medical directors.  Students learn from 90+ highly acclaimed faculty, many of whom are affiliated with the University of Toronto, with expertise in orthopaedics, rheumatology, radiology, immunology, laboratory medicine, and much more.
