In Canada, to become a physical therapist a student must complete a 4 year undergraduate degree, followed by a 2 year physical therapy post graduate degree. After passing board certification exams a student with this training is referred to as a licensed physical therapist. As far as I am aware, there is no doctorate program available in Canada that enables physiotherapists to become a doctor of physical therapy. However, there is at present a lobby group pushing the government to allow/recognize extension of the physical therapy program to a 4 year doctoral degree. If/when this occurs, physiotherapy will become similar to other health care doctoral programs like medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, etc., requiring 8 years of schooling and conferring the title doctor of physiotherapy.
