Call for Reviewers

The organizing committee is now calling for volunteers to sit on the Abstract Review Committee. Members will be responsible for reviewing proposals for papers/presentations to determine their suitability for inclusion in the 2021 Orthopaedic Symposium.

The position of abstract reviewer is an important one, as we want the quality of presentations at the Symposium to reflect the high calibre of physiotherapy research and clinical practice in Canada. The organizing committee greatly values the collective opinion of the profession when making decision about content.

The submission deadline for the Symposium is October 12, 2020. Proposals will be distributed electronically for review the following week and the review process will be completed entirely through the Symposium website. Reviews must be completed October 24, 2020. Successful applicants will be notified shortly afterwards.

Members of the Abstract Review Committee should be physiotherapists with an additional post-entry to practice degree in physiotherapy or a related field (Research Master’s Degree, Clinical Master’s in Manual Therapy, PhD, etc.).

If you would like to volunteer, please submit your name and academic credentials to:

Chair, Abstract Review Committee, 2021 Orthopaedic Symposium
