Program Description

Bond University Degree Program

Doctor of Physiotherapy

The Doctor of Physiotherapy offers an innovative problem based learning model of physiotherapy education to prepare entry level physiotherapists for their roles and responsibilities as first contact practitioners.

The program integrates the clinical, pathological and related sciences with the physiotherapy knowledge, skills and professional behaviors and attitudes required to examine, diagnose and treat physiotherapy clients.

The Doctor of Physiotherapy assists you to progressively develop and apply your knowledge, skills and professional attitudes and behavior for physiotherapy practice and places a strong emphasis on clinical experiential learning with 50 per cent of the program undertaken in a clinical context. The first 30 weeks of clinical practice addresses five core areas in both hospital and community settings and one elective.

In the final semester, the program culminates in a 12-week clinical internship with an aligned research project. This extending clinical / research opportunity is designed to ensure graduates are well prepared for entry into the physiotherapy workforce.
