Contemporary Physiotherapy Practice at University of Lincoln - UCAS

Course summary

Physiotherapy is a scientific and evidence-based health profession that takes a ‘whole person’ approach to improving and maintaining wellbeing. Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness, or disability, using a range of interventions such as advice, education, exercise, and manual therapy and electrophysical agents. This programme is designed for qualified physiotherapists who wish to enhance their knowledge, skills, autonomy, leadership, and critical thinking, to equip them for modern day evidence-based practice. With an emphasis on applied theory and practical development, the programme aims to enhance both practical and research skills through critical engagement with evidence-based strategies for clinical practice. Students will also be encouraged to undertake analytical reflections based on their clinical practice to direct their own personal and professional development. Students will receive support from academics who have specialist knowledge and experience in the field.
