STEP 5: CLINICAL EXAM
Once you pass the PCE written component, the final step to licensure to practice is completion of a provincial clinical exam. In Ontario, this is called the Ontario Clinical Exam (OCE) administered by the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario (CPO). The OCE explores your knowledge, skills and abilities and how these are applied to practice.
