As a physiotherapist you are integral to optimising functional ability and the quality of life of many individuals. You achieve this through your skills in health promotion and education, exercise prescription and rehabilitation and preventative health care. This course prepares you for a career in physiotherapy by combining university-based and placement experience. During the course we introduce you to key concepts of professional practice, such as reflective practice, building the therapeutic relationship and models of health, illness and disability. You use examples of real patient stories to develop your understanding of service users’ perceptions and experiences, and you explore clinical guidelines and protocols for best practice.
