    Re: starting out in Canada

    Hello rewa14,
    Thanks for your reply, regarding the pce there are two type first written exam secod is clinical exam if if you go to the www.alliancept.org you can get to know all the information regarding the pce,see faq, also if you serch the string right here on physiobob many people have spoken on it and also one of the person who has cleared his pce has given the vital information on it.
    regarding the books try tosee as many books as posssible because what they are looking for is the entry level knowledge and the real life problem solving skill in the clinical setting and ethics and regulation.
    hope this is of help! do let me know if this has been of assistance .
    regarding the types of books, i wll let you know as soon as i find out best of luck for your prepartion for the exmas.

    Hey guys, If you have reached Canada, you will have gotten the answer to your question by now, if for some reason you still have not, then let me tell you, the info you got is a ton of crap!!! you could be a Physio with Masters deg from an American University, and have more than 20 years work experience , but Canada is Canada, You WILL have to sit through the PCE here. Best of Luck.,( P.S. If you got this info from you immigration agent, he is a real crook feeding you utter false information, stay away from him.)
