The Course

Summary

Our three-year physiotherapy programme focuses on working with people to maximise their functional ability – and their potential. Whether your client’s condition is recovering, stable or deteriorating, we’ll equip you with the necessary skills to help them overcome their challenges.Our course focuses on body systems, and exploring how they impact on the body’s ability to move and function effectively. Core areas include neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and respiratory therapy in both acute and primary care settings. Our interdisciplinary ethos means that you’ll be studying with students from therapies that you’ll encounter in your working life. Inter-professional teamwork will be a central element of your career, and UEA remains one of the only UK universities to offer this approach.Once you have a sound knowledge of the clinical sciences that underpin human function and dysfunction you’ll start hands-on practice. You’ll focus on the specific needs of each client or client group, and you’ll become expert in understanding specific psychological, cultural, and social factors in the context of care, as well as learning about due consideration of the needs and abilities of others involved with the client, including carers and other health and social care workers.You’ll learn how to apply problem-solving and clinical reasoning to assess and evaluate a client’s health. You’ll master specific assessment and treatment techniques. You’ll gain understanding in how to manage both yourself and those around you. And you’ll develop and hone the interpersonal skills key to enabling the negotiation of action plans, and to engaging effectively with patients, carers, and the multidisciplinary healthcare team. **Course Structure**Our Physiotherapy degree is strong on both theory and practice. In each of your three years you’ll undertake mandatory modules, which will vary in credit weight, as well as two practice placements. You’ll need to pass each of the modules in order to progress onto the next level. Then you’ll have introductory sessions at the start of each academic year to support your transition between the academic levels.**Year 1**In your first year, you’ll study five compulsory modules including Foundations of Professional Practice, Human Sciences, PT Theory & Practice, Placement Education and Mandatory Training. You’ll also complete a two-week and a four-week placement, focusing on core transferable and profession-specific knowledge, skills and behaviours.**Year 2**In your second year you’ll undertake a six and an eight-week placement, further developing your core skills. Mandatory modules will include Physiotherapy Practice 2, Evidence-based Practice, Placement Education and Mandatory Training.**Year 3**In your final year mandatory modules include Physiotherapy Practice 3, Research Policy & Practice, Placement Education, and Mandatory Training. You’ll also complete further six and eight week placements, focusing on the acquisition of more complex skills.
