The focus of the early part of the course is on the conditions for which people typically seek physiotherapy. You will study biomedical and behavioural sciences ranging over Anatomy, Biomechanics, Kinesiology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Psychology, Radiology and Sociology. In doing so, you'll lay the foundations for physiotherapy practice and research, using a problem-based and patient-centred approach to learning.
In the later years you move to the clinical setting, where your knowledge and skills are put to practice in the delivery of physiotherapy services under the supervision of experienced physiotherapists. This clinical education may occur in a diversity of settings, including metropolitan and rural health services.
Clinical practice units
This course requires you to undertake off-campus rural and metropolitan clinical placements. In the clinical setting you will have an opportunity to apply theory to practice under supervision. Attendance is mandatory for the clinical component of each unit.
If your skill or knowledge is found to be inadequate, access to the clinical component of the unit will be denied. You may be withdrawn from a clinical practicum if required skills and knowledge are deemed inadequate, or on other grounds deemed appropriate by the head of department.
