Course summary

Veterinary Physiotherapists are part of a multi-disciplinary team supporting animals (primarily horses and dogs) through injury, disease, fitness acquisition or post-operative recovery; they are also actively involved in the maintenance of wellbeing and welfare. It is a growing discipline, with more veterinary surgeons recognising the benefit of working alongside veterinary physiotherapists for the benefit of the individual animal. Understanding the mechanisms of injury and disease, the processes of operative interventions and the requirements of the animal for rehabilitation and repair are what make this highly technical career so exciting and fulfilling.

Postgraduate Certificate Animal Health provides an entry point to the Veterinary Physiotherapy postgraduate courses for those students with non-typical entry qualifications. It is designed to provide the under-pinning knowledge required to subsequently develop skills to support veterinary surgeons in the rehabilitation of a variety of species. It will in particular focus on equine and canine patients.

The course will be run on a part-time basis over one year, with the majority being delivered at weekends (there will be the occasional Friday that requires attendance, such as academic Induction and examinations.
