Celebrating preceptor excellence

The Rehab Medicine Student Association hosted it's annual Gala on March 25th and we were thrilled to acknowledge Clinical Educators of the Year for all three departments. This year, special recognition went to the Halvar Jonson Centre for Brain Injury - Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury who produced both the Occupational Therapy (Gary Rowland) and Physical Therapy (Kari Kopat).  This is obviously a team and facility that excels in Clinical Education and the honor was well deserved!
