Volunteers Needed - University of Toronto Research Study
Exploring the Experiences and Perceptions of Research Role-Emerging Placements in Physiotherapy
The University of Toronto Physical Therapy program is conducting a qualitative study using a semi-structured interview to explore the experiences and outcomes of research role-emerging placements (RREPs). Specifically, they seek to explore the experiences and outcomes of individuals who completed a research role emerging placement within the last 10 years of graduating from their respective Canadian entry-to-practice physiotherapy program. RREPs may include any placement where at least 50% of time was spent on research activities, including reviewing research literature, developing research protocol, conducting data collection, conducting data analysis, scientific writing, or dissemination of research findings.
Individuals will be invited to complete an interview that may take up to one hour and be conducted via the telephone or web-based platform (Zoom). Topics will explore why graduates chose to participate in a RREP, understanding their personal experiences during the RREP, and if the RREP placement impacted the individual’s career and professional development.
