Program description

Bachelor's in Physiotherapy

Get the best physiotherapy training and equip yourself to flourish in one of the most versatile and in-demand of the healthcare professions, with the Monash Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours).

This course gives you a high-quality academic education, intensive training in relevant clinical environments, and the chance to study with expert physiotherapists and leading researchers.

You will acquire the knowledge and skills you need to practice as a physiotherapist, using exercise, movement analysis, manual therapy and specialist techniques to restore, improve and promote health.

The course will prepare you for a range of career opportunities, working independently or as part of a team of healthcare professionals.

The focus of the early part of the course is on the conditions for which people typically seek physiotherapy. You will study biomedical and behavioural sciences ranging over Anatomy, Biomechanics, Kinesiology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Psychology, Radiology and Sociology. In doing so, you'll lay the foundations for physiotherapy practice and research, using a problem-based and patient-centred approach to learning.

In the later years you move to the clinical setting, where your knowledge and skills are put to practice in the delivery of physiotherapy services under the supervision of experienced physiotherapists. This clinical education may occur in a diversity of settings, including metropolitan and rural health services.

Your skills will be developed through small-group learning, with some time each semester spent working with students enrolled in other health-science courses (e.g. occupational therapy, nursing, paramedic practice, medical imaging, nutrition and dietetics, social work) enabling you to experience interdisciplinary service delivery and inter-professional education.

You will learn from highly trained and experienced physiotherapists who are skilled in education and research, and gain exposure to areas in which you could later specialise, such as cardiorespiratory, gerontology, paediatrics, neurology or musculoskeletal care.

Once registered with the Physiotherapy Board of Australia, you'll be on your way to a challenging and rewarding career working in public and private hospitals, health centres, sports medicine clinics, maternity hospitals, rehabilitation centres, aged-care facilities and private practices, as well as in health promotion, education, management and research.
