Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which sees human movement as central to the health and wellbeing of individuals of all ages. The physiotherapists’ expertise helps to identify and maximise movement potential through health promotion, preventive healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation.
This course prepares you to be a physiotherapist and exceeds the minimum of 1,000 clinical practice hours you need to qualify. The course provides observational experience of professional practice in Year 1 then 12 weeks of hands-on practice education in Year 2 and 17 weeks in Year 3, all supervised by trained physiotherapy clinical educators. Our developmental curriculum is designed to empower and teach you how to assess and treat patients and to communicate with both patients and other members of the multi-professional team professionally and effectively.
The course is delivered by a cohesive team of lecturer-practitioner staff who are all experts in their chosen clinical fields of physiotherapy practice. All practical skills teaching is undertaken in small student classes in newly refurbished specialist teaching accommodation which includes state-of-the-art clinical skills labs using high fidelity simulation manikins, our 360-degree immersive simulation facility and access to the Medical School anatomy dissection room.
Our course has excellent links with our practice placement colleagues who work in a wide variety of clinical settings including NHS wards, outpatients units and clinics, a specialist Brain Injury Unit, adult and paediatric palliative care units, private, independent and charitable facilities and Leicester Tigers Rugby Club. During both university-based teaching and practice placement you will have the opportunity to work and study inter-professionally with other health and social care students.
All rooms are fitted with AppleTVs to facilitate digital learning and you will be given an iPad when you start which you will use daily in lectures, seminars and group work.
Our course has a strong focus on professional and lifelong learning skills, evidence informed physiotherapy practice and research skills.
