Physiotherapy and Chiropractic:
Physiotherapy and Chiropractic services are not available at this time.
The physicians at Health and Counselling Services or anywhere else do not have the authority to exempt students from exams, assignments, etc. Whether an exemption occurs is up to the instructor and should be based upon a conversation between the instructor and the student seeking a change to course requirements.
