PCE BOOT CAMP DATES RELEASED FOR NOVEMBER 2018 EXAM PREP

PTDI PRESENTS PCE BOOT CAMP – OSCE 1 DAY WORKSHOP

The PCE BOOT CAMP is a one day workshop consisting of back-to-back stations developed by PTDI to mimic the intense scenarios you may encounter on exam day. Our Canadian trained registered Physiotherapists will monitor you frequently to give you the feedback you need to crush the PCE. Each mock station will be followed by a review of the station marking scheme and demonstrations on how to properly execute the station.

DATES:

  • Access to the PCE Boot Camp Facebook group which will include Facebook Live lectures prior to the course and Facebook Live Q&A’s after the course leading up to the exam.
  • One day intensive workshop which is jam packed full of practice stations (ALL STATIONS! NO LECTURING!)

The PCE Boot Camp is geared towards Canadian PT school graduates due to the fast pace of the course. The PCE Boot Camp is only offered prior to the November PCE Clinical Component. If you are an international graduate, please consider the PCE PREP COURSE as we have found that the PCE Boot Camp may not be sufficient for all international graduates.
