Not all physical therapy and physiotherapy programs in Canada require an interview for those selected for admission. Some programs only require the completion of a CASPer® Test. Please refer to the chart below to determine whether the completion of a CASPer® Test and/or interview is required. Please click on the school/program’s website link for more details.

Preparing ahead for the CASPer® Test and/or interview are important to having a successful outcome. Preparation sessions for both the school’s interview and CASPer® Test are provided through Blue Dolphin Training and Coaching. Contact us early for more information.

What our clients say

I sought out Gordon’s coaching services after he was recommended to me by a friend who was accepted into physiotherapy school in the previous year. I had never experienced an interview where the questions were situation based and had only ever experienced one panel interview. Gordon helped me build confidence and taught me how to structure my answers in a way that insured the interviewers would understand and remember. Gordon provided great feedback and always pointed out the “good” in my answers as well as pointed out areas I could improve, and he helped me do so. He went over key points about body language and other non-verbal forms of communication I would have never thought about practicing before my interview if it wasn’t for his guidance. I believe Gordon’s coaching played a significant role in my acceptance into physiotherapy school and highly recommend his services.
