Mass Gathering Medicine Collaborates with Physical Therapy

On November 4th 2015, Mass Gathering Medicine (MGM) invited Masters of Physical Therapy (MPT) students to assist in the organization of the Ankle Injuries and Taping workshop– an evening comprised of a didactic and practical session for interested medical students. This event was a first-time collaboration between medical students and seniors students within the Department of Physical Therapy. With a turn-out comprising of over fifty students, this event was largely successful and facilitated the delivery of a great introduction to acute musculoskeletal care- skills undoubtedly useful for future physicians. This collaboration was featured in the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia’s webpage and successfully sparked future interdisciplinary events for medical students involved within MGM.
