Course content

In the Academic year of 2019-20 the Division of Dietetics, Physiotherapy, Podiatry and Radiography (DPPR) is launching an exciting, educationally and practice relevant award pathway in Physiotherapy.

This award pathway will be of interest if you want to advance your practice in the area of Physiotherapy.

The Physiotherapy award pathway is one of a number of pathways offered within our multi-professional Advancing Practice in Health Framework

The Physiotherapy award pathway is based on a model of collaborative multi-professional learning aligned to expectations of the four pillars of advanced practice (Clinical Practice, Leadership, Education and Research). There are learning opportunities in areas such as fundamentals of advanced practice, critical analysis, evaluation and research methodologies, as well as a number of more specific modules. The Framework also offers opportunities to draw on expertise across the University such as business management, leadership, social science and education.

The Physiotherapy pathway aims to foster and develop QMU’s vision of ideas and influence and its mission of cultivating intellectual capital with both a theoretical and practical focus. Learning and teaching is underpinned by research, evidence and scholarship against a background of the current and evolving political and social landscape for health and wellbeing.

The Physiotherapy pathway offers flexibility in modes of study (part time, full time, work place) that are responsive to individual needs and today’s culture of work and learning.

All modules are delivered online and can be studied from a distance.

Additional support is available for those new to or returning to master's level study.
