Fighting fires with Bond physiotherapy students
The Doctor of Physiotherapy at Bond University is an innovative, problem-based learning curriculum based on small-group facilitated tutorials, resource sessions and learning in a clinical environment.
Students undertake studies in Bond University’s $20-million, state-of-the-art building. Features include clinical skills laboratories designed to simulate real medical environments, and modern teaching and research laboratories with the latest scientific equipment. The purpose-built tutorial rooms cater to small-group learning and lecture theatres are equipped with video streaming, wireless, and an audience-response system, and also features a dedicated computer laboratory for students.
Sounds great, but let’s not forget their amazing clinical internships!
Bond Physiotherapy students have the unique opportunity to be placed in tactical environments for rehabilitation training during their degree. Here, Bond DPT student Adam Walker takes part in measuring rehydration levels in firefighters as they fight fire!
