Students will also commit to self-learning and professional growth, and be able to adapt to change and respond to challenge. They will gain extensive practical experience in hospitals and clinics, both off and on campus.Students commence in this program with an introduction to the fundamental knowledge relating to professional issues, communication, physiotherapy examination and treatment techniques.
