Clinical Work Experience

Placements for this course are to take in place in the final two years of the program.  Every clinical placement will have a different focus, such as physiotherapy within musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, neurological, or across the lifespan areas. Clinical placements will also take place in a variety of settings, such as inpatients, outpatients, community centres, or private practice. Regardless of the clinical placement focus or setting, students will be expected to safely and competently assess and treat clients in a holistic and evidence-based manner, drawing on knowledge and skill sets related to core areas of physiotherapy practice.

Entry Requirements

Applicants to Griffith University’s Bachelor of Physiotherapy must have a provincial high school diploma with an average of 90% in their last year of studies or an OSSD with 90% in the best six University (U,4U) and/or University/College (U/C, 4M) courses.
