Bachelor of Physiotherapy

Bachelor of Physiotherapy

This course provides the learning experiences to gain the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors expected of an entry-level physiotherapist. It has a hybrid structure-using curriculum based learning to efficiently learn foundation knowledge together with case studies and clinical practice to integrate knowledge into clinical decision-making. It also emphasizes evidence-based practice and encourages students in critical thinking. Prospective applicants are advised that the program requires full participation in laboratory classes where manual skills, including the ability to lift and support severely disabled patients independently and topics such as surface anatomy are presented. Essential learning strategies demand that all students disrobe appropriately in order to act as subjects for their peer group, have the ability to participate fully and are willing to act as subjects for their peer group and as mock patients for other students.
