Physiotherapy (Foundation) - Manchester Metropolitan University

The Foundation year route is only available to Home/EU students and not currently open to applications from international students. Part of the medical team helping a mother to regain movement after a stroke. Getting an athlete back on the pitch after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament. Easing a four-year-old’s long-term breathing problems, caused by cystic fibrosis. All of these scenarios have one thing in common; a physiotherapist. Amongst a team of skilled healthcare professionals – including doctors and nurses – physiotherapists independently identify, assess and analyse physical problems caused by injury, illness or ageing and treat them by taking a holistic approach using skills such as manual therapy, exercise or electrotherapy. This four-year degree incorporates the core values of the NHS constitution to help prepare you for the challenges of working as a physiotherapist in a modern practice. You’ll learn to assess what people need, and identify their problems. We’ll help you to understand how to set treatment goals and determine approaches that provide the maximum benefit for your patient. To teach you essential clinical reasoning skills we use real patient case studies. This will give you the opportunity to try out your practical skills such as joint mobilisations and massage on people in your class and on patient simulators. **Features and benefits** - **Approved course**- Our Physiotherapy course has been approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
