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 Diploma Veterinary Physiotherapy is recognised by the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP), accredited by the Animal Health Professions’ Register (AHPR) and supported by the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP). Students will develop the skills needed to support veterinary surgeons in the rehabilitation of a variety of species, with a particular focus on equine and canine patients. It also focuses on supporting equine and canine athletes both during competition and for recovery.

The course will be run on a part-time basis over two years, with the majority being delivered at weekends (11 weekends for the 1st year, 19 weekends - including internal placement weekends on site - for the 2nd year). There will be the occasional Friday that requires attendance, such as academic Induction and examinations.
