Course Summary

Important Notice - This course will relocate. Applicants and current students will be updated in due course.Are you willing to put patients first in everything you do, and treat all with respect, dignity & compassion? Are you aware that physios work in all areas of health (e.g. elderly care, intensive care, respiratory care, stroke care, mental health & orthopaedics) not just in musculoskeletal/sports injuries? Do you realise that, for the safety of their patients, all physio students are required to be vaccinated and to pass both a medical and an enhanced criminal record check? Do you appreciate that physio students are expected to act in the role of patients for their classmates during practical classes, and that this sometimes means being undressed to your underwear? Are you prepared to put in a lot of work (20+ in-class hrs/wk in Year 1, plus plenty of home study)? If so, this may be the course for you.We will train you to cope with virtually all situations that physios meet professionally. We will also focus on your academic development, aiming to leave you able to: identify problems that need solving, seek out related information and critically appraise its value, come up with recommendations for tackling the initial problem, and produce a report/presentation with which to transmit your recommendations to an audience.The University regularly 'refreshes' courses to make sure they are as up-to-date as possible. The University call this process 'academic revalidation'. This course will be 'refreshed' during the 2017/18 academic year, with changes put in place for students entering in Sept 2018.
