Physiotherapy - York St John University

Physiotherapists are professionals who use clinical and reasoning skills and knowledge to aid in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of patients with acute and chronic conditions at all ages. Physiotherapy at York St John University offers the advantage of studying in a small cohort within a student-centred environment. This programme aims to produce high calibre, successful Physiotherapy graduates who are fit for purpose and practice. You will adopt a problem-led approach using a blend of traditional and innovative teaching methods delivered by research-active lecturers with a wealth of clinical experience in a variety of settings. Graduates will be competent, reflective, critical thinking practitioners who are able to take responsibility for their own professional development and implement the delivery of safe, ethical and effective physiotherapy services in a wide variety of inter-professional and multicultural contexts appropriate to the changing needs of the service user and emerging professional roles. Physiotherapy interventions include manual therapy, therapeutic and electro-therapeutic modalities which are used to maximise the function and potential of individuals. You will undertake a minimum of 1,000 hours of professional practice, during which you will be supervised by experienced physiotherapists. Your placements will be in a variety of clinical locations to ensure that you gain wide-ranging experience across the physiotherapy profession. During Year 2 there are opportunities for international placements. Methods of assessment may include presentations, assignments and case studies. Practical assessments allow you to demonstrate the skills and knowledge required for professional practice. A research project will be undertaken in Year 3. As a qualified physiotherapist you could find employment within a range of settings, including the NHS, GP practices, schools, hospices, charitable organisations, sports clubs, within industry settings and private organisations. On successful completion of the programme graduates will be able to meet the requirements for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and membership of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
