Course summary

This course will allow you to become a confident and proficient Physiotherapist with a strong grasp of integrated working

Overview

This new course is designed for graduates who wish to qualify as a Physiotherapist with eligibility for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) through an accelerated two-year route.

The course has been developed in collaboration with Occupational Therapy and Social Work programmes and will prepare you to work within the complex and rapidly evolving environment of health and social care.

Physiotherapy-specific modules will prepare you for clinical practice, through development of your theoretical understanding, critical thinking skills, and application of knowledge and skills to physiotherapy practice. The course will make use of scenario-based learning opportunities, simulation and will involve service users in teaching, learning and assessment, giving you ‘real-world’ experiences.

As well as undertaking discipline-specific modules, you’ll undertake collaborative inter-professional modules, where you’ll work closely with students from the other disciplines in health and social care to develop your skills in communication, innovative thinking, clinical reasoning and team working.

The course will prepare you to enter the workplace as a confident, proficient and autonomous Physiotherapist, with a strong understanding of current service provision and the graduate skills to lead and innovate in shaping future delivery in a rapidly changing sector to effectively meet the needs of service-users.

Course details

This course is designed around a series of inter-professional and discipline-specific themes, which can be summarised into a focus for each of the two years of the programme: Developing a foundation for practice (Year 1); and Advancing practice and shaping the future (Year 2). These themes will allow you to become a proficient and versatile practitioner, working with other disciplines in health and social care from the outset.

From the start of your studies you’ll be sharing many aspects of learning with Occupational Therapy and Social Work students through collaborative modules. This will allow you to develop a deep understanding of the roles of not only these other professions, but also your own, and provides the opportunity to enhance communication skills and partnership working. The themes of evidence-informed practice and research, and professional values and decision making, run through the two-year course.

Careers

The course aims to develop Physiotherapists who are skilled in their own profession, with a strong professional identity and the ability to work in effective collaboration with other disciplines to put service-users at the centre of their care.

You’ll be enabled to work effectively in a range of settings from traditional environments to contemporary integrated health and social care teams, third sector organisations, private providers, performance sports or any other environment in which Physiotherapists commonly practice.
