Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy)

Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy)


Physiotherapy has an integral role in the prevention of injury and disability, and in a clinical response to people after injury or disability has occurred. From international-level sports organisations, to hospitals and nursing homes, to the local community practice, physiotherapists provide advice about, and treatment to restore physical function and well-being.

In this course, you will undertake a combination of theoretical, practical and clinical subjects. You will explore the foundations of anatomy, structure and function of the human body in your first year. Your subsequent years will be devoted to a more intensive study of the musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiopulmonary areas. You will develop practical skills in laboratory settings which are applied under clinical supervision in hospital and community settings, working with people from all age groups. Emphasis is placed on professional development and strong interpersonal communication skills which are attributes of client-centred practice. You will become familiar with acute and long-term case management and can take advantage of placements in rural and remote health care settings.

Please note: Participation is obligatory in laboratory classes which require appropriate disrobing when acting as clients in the peer group, and physically manipulating patients including lifting and supporting people with disabilities.
