University of of South Australia Physiotherapy School Undergraduate Entry

  

Overview

The Bachelor of Physiotherapy prepares students for a professional career in physiotherapy and enables them to enter professional practice in various fields including: women`s and children`s health, sports, musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, neurological and geriatric physiotherapy.

The program provides a balanced education in the related areas of medical science, humanities and physiotherapy practice and promotes evidence based practice and clinical reasoning approaches.

Courses in all years of the program fall within the biophysical sciences and professional studies. A major section of the early years of the program is the study of normal movement and the basic medical science courses. The remainder of the program deals with abnormal movement and the nature and application of physical modalities used in prevention and treatment of disease and disability. The student is trained not only as a member of the health care team concerned with the physical and psychosocial rehabilitation of sick and disabled people, but also to be a practitioner of first contact concerned with prevention of disability in the workplace, in the community and in recreational pursuits.

The program requires completion of 144 units of study.
