Course summary

Overview

Are you a qualified physiotherapist working in musculoskeletal practice and looking to take your career to the next level? Maybe your role involves assisting patients who require rehabilitation after surgery or sporting injury, or perhaps you work with individuals who have a disability or long-term condition that limits their functional level. This course in advanced clinical practice (musculoskeletal rehabilitation) is designed for physiotherapists who wish to further develop their skills and expertise as an advanced or specialist clinical practitioner across a range of musculoskeletal (MSK) healthcare settings here in the UK and abroad.

On this course, you’ll gain advanced skills in assessment, clinical reasoning, and evidence-based management for the treatment and rehabilitation of MSK patients presenting within inpatient, outpatient and primary care settings. You’ll be taught the latest theory, science and principles behind MSK practice which will give you a broad, yet in-depth, understanding of physiotherapy as well as evidence-based rehabilitation approaches and how these can be used to treat patients with musculoskeletal conditions.

Our master’s degree will also develop your cognitive skills, such as writing skills, which are important in clinical practice to enhance communication with other clinicians, allied healthcare personnel and for research. You’ll be encouraged to be creative in your thinking, as well as enhancing your proficiency in analysis and evaluation, meaning you’ll graduate as a highly competent practitioner ready to become a leader within your field.

Careers and your future

This course will prepare you for careers in advanced musculoskeletal physiotherapy practice within a range of healthcare settings. You’ll be able to apply the expert knowledge, clinical reasoning and complex decision-making skills that you have gained to your clinical setting. You could go on to become an Advanced Physiotherapist Practitioner (APP) within the NHS, where roles usually start in Band 8a of the NHS Agenda for change pay scale.

On successful completion, you’ll be best placed to undertake leadership or senior positions within a range of clinical areas. From the NHS and private practices, to the military, public or sports sector; our graduates are well-equipped to make a positive impact and become innovative clinicians within their field. You could also move into academic or clinical research roles or other healthcare-related positions in industry. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
