MSK Physiotherapist Graduate Development Programme

Job description

Our Graduate development programme offers an exciting opportunity for you to gain exposure to the MSK field whilst supporting you along the way with brilliant levels of training and support.

Commencing in September 2020, there are three distinct phases to your structured 12-month development journey, combining theory with practice-based learning. You will receive mentoring from your clinical buddy from day one where you will initially shadow and then partner in patient interactions whilst developing your knowledge through structured workshops delivered by our clinical experts and leaders. These centre around the programme objectives of clinical reasoning in line with our clinical philosophy, red flags and safety and communication skills. By week four you should progress to lead your own clinical caseload, all whilst having the support of your buddy with scheduled weekly time to review and continue learning.

After three months, you will transition on to a more accelerated development programme consisting of over 70 hours of teaching sessions within your paid working week. In a workshop environment the programme is evidence based, people centred and practical in nature making the MSK learning experience accessible and less confusing.

At the end of your development programme, you’ll be proud to say that you completed a market-leading MSK development programme, within an organisation where 80% of us say that it’s a great place to work. And with a career ahead of you at Connect that continues to challenge, stimulate and reward.
