Clinical Associates at Schuler Sports Performance are comprised of highly skilled, compassionate and experienced professionals who are inspired by research and treatment excellence. Each Clinical Associate has been carefully selected based on their clinical skill, training and expertise, and compassion as a practitioner. As a clinical centre, Schuler Sports Performance has also fostered a collaborative network with other health professionals (psychiatry, psychology, social work, and psychotherapists) and community agencies/partners (local hospitals, outpatient clinics, child and family support services, educational programs, and sports-injury medical programs/clinics). Schuler Sports Performance also supports student training and professional development, and as a result can provide some clinical services at a reduced rate. Our Clinical Associates include:
