Applicants are required to have graduated from a Physical or Occupational Therapy Entry-level Degree Program or a four (4) year health relevant program, with a minimum of a B+ average in the final year of the program. Degrees and grades from foreign universities are evaluated for their equivalency to a McMaster University four (4) year undergraduate degree. Prospective applicants who do not hold a four (4) year undergraduate degree, but who have several years of work experience that is relevant to the program, should discuss their situation with the Program Coordinator. Additional courses may be required under these circumstances. Evidence of ability to do graduate work will still be required.
