A central part of the educational experience at WCCMT involves clinical practicum training in our professional intern clinic. As a client in our public clinic you will have the opportunity to experience for yourself the best in massage therapy services which our student interns provide. These services are provided by RMT interns supervised by experienced registered massage therapists who are active in clinical practice.
Please be informed that WCCMT’s public intern clinic is a teaching clinic offered for the sole purpose of providing our student interns with the opportunity to apply and integrate their knowledge and skills in our clinical environment. Our interns are students in a registered massage therapy training program. They are not registered massage therapists.
When you receive treatment in our clinic you are receiving treatment from a student intern and not from a registered massage therapist and consequently you are not able to bill for this service under your extended health care plan.
