Doctor of Physiotherapy

As a physiotherapist, you have the opportunity to make a big impact on someone’s life. Whether you’re part of a transplant recipient’s first steps with a new set of lungs or helping an athlete get back on the field after an injury, it’s a highly rewarding job.

The Doctor of Physiotherapy provides you with the knowledge, skills, and clinical experience to start your career as a physiotherapist. Based on our Peninsula campus, you’ll become part of a growing specialist precinct for allied health and primary care education and research.

A physiotherapist in training from day one

Get hands-on experience and exposure to the clinical environment from the start of your degree. We offer early work-integrated learning, where you’ll see physiotherapists in action, take part in simulation activities, and practice your new skills in our physiotherapy practice labs and rehabilitation gym on campus. You’ll also have opportunities to learn collaborative practice alongside students from other areas of health, preparing you to provide the best possible patient care.
