Student Clinics

The student clinics allow our students to gain hands-on experience and practice with patients. Once students complete and pass their examinations for a modality, they are able to perform the modality during our student clinics.

Dear Valued Customer,

We thank you for your patience over the last few months of suspended student clinic services and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you back in the clinic from July 4th.

I am sure you understand that there will be restrictions to practice, including fixed appointment times and removal of waiting areas.  You will be contacted prior to your appointment by a student member of staff and informed of which entrance you will be asked to use. Please wait in your vehicle until your appointment time. If this is not possible please let us know in advance.

CCATCM advocates preventative healthcare at all times, and as such is requesting that patients wear a face mask or covering during your visit to the clinic. You will also be asked to
sign a health and travel declaration notice upon each visit.  There will be plenty of students on hand to assist you and answer any questions.

Online booking is available through our website, and we encourage you to pay for your treatment at the time of booking to reduce the demand for the point of sale terminal during
clinic times.

Please be aware that due to provincial travel restrictions, not all students are currently available. However, all students practicing in clinic conform to the same high standards and I encourage you to try someone new to you! 

With many thanks,



Lucy Griffiths
