Course content

Why study the Master of Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy graduates have the opportunity to undertake the first stage in an ongoing program for clinical physiotherapists working in various fields of special interest.

The program also assists graduates to acquire a knowledge and understanding of advanced clinical skills; to broaden their clinical skills across the field of practice; and critically evaluate and contribute to research in their clinical area.

Professional development in clinical specialty areas and research are major career demands for physiotherapists. Students develop up-to-date knowledge and research skills in the fields of musculoskeletal physiotherapy or sports physiotherapy.

Students undertaking a Master of Physiotherapy in either Musculoskeletal or Sports Physiotherapy could obtain a second masters degree in the alternate area through an additional semester of full-time coursework.
