Great research can be made possible through the hard work of honest, critical thinkers that are engaged for the experience, the joy, and the challenges akin to researching relevant questions to advance Canada’s Health Care system and the health management of our population. While volunteering may not be for everyone, it is becoming increasing required for entrance into many post-graduate medical programs from medicine to physiotherapy. As a practicing clinician, this is a great method for continued professional advancement. While many individuals seek volunteer experience in some form of clinical practice, the general arena of research is also available for those looking off the beaten path; trying something new, gaining a unique skill set and generating knowledge that will advance practice for the future. If you are interested in volunteering, many research opportunities exist within Musculoskeletal Health Research at the School of Physiotherapy, Dalhousie University, or if you are just in the mood to talk about Musculoskeletal Health Research initiatives at  the School of Physiotherapy, Dalhousie University, please contact
