The program integrates the clinical, pathological and related sciences with the physiotherapy knowledge, skills and professional behaviours and attitudes required to examine, diagnose and treat physiotherapy clients.
The program places a strong emphasis on clinical experiential learning with 50 per cent of the program undertaken in a clinical context. This enables students to progressively develop and apply knowledge, skills and professional attitudes and behaviour for physiotherapy practice.

- cardio-respiratory practice
- out-patient musculo-skeletal practice (hospital or private practice settings)
- neurological and ortho-geriatric rehabilitation (hospital and community settings)
