Physiotherapy is the largest allied health profession. Physiotherapists work with patients and their families/carers to address problems experienced as a result of illness, injury and disability. They use physical means to promote health, optimal rehabilitation and, where possible, recovery. Physiotherapy is a broad field, making for an exciting and varied career. Physiotherapists practice as autonomous professionals when acting as the first point of contact for clients/patients, or as part of a health or social care team. Our course will give you the professional skills and knowledge necessary for contemporary practice. The Department of Physiotherapy carries out significant research, and we emphasise the role of research in physiotherapy and the importance of evidence-based practice throughout the course. Through this you will gain experience of a wide range of research methods. We have designed this course to match the needs of the modern ever-changing health sector. We work closely with a network of clinical colleagues, primarily in the NHS, and these partnerships ensure that the course’s delivery and development are practice-led.
