Why is the Melbourne DPT 3 years in length?
The Melbourne DPT commenced in 2011 and is the first three-year physiotherapy graduate-entry master’s-level program, providing a benchmark for physiotherapy education in Australia. In addition to core hands-on practical physiotherapy skills, key program features include advanced theoretical knowledge in areas such as pharmacology, radiology, leadership and management, sports physiotherapy and inter-professional education, including a faculty student conference.
Students will be well prepared for the changing roles of the physiotherapist in areas such as acute care, chronic disease management, health promotion, emergency medicine, private practice and sports medicine. The course provides a vertically integrated community group health promotion project that culminates in a presentation and possible publication at the end of three years of study. The clinical program builds progressively to independent practice, with approximately 37 weeks of clinical practice. There is also the potential for an overseas clinical experience to add depth of understanding in global health care.
