MCTA Research Award

The Mulligan Concept Teachers Association (MCTA) has identified the need to promote the undertaking of significant research projects and the dissemination of research findings relative to the Mulligan Concept and therefore has formed a MCTA Research Award to provide financial assistance for quality research of a high academic standard that investigates the efficacy or scientific basis for Mulligan Concept treatment techniques.
To find out more about the MCTA Research Award or to download an application & guidelines form go to the Award page.
