Is Physiotherapy for You?

The worldwide function of physiotherapists has changed from disease management to promoting prosperity and societal well-being. Additionally, physiotherapists who want to work in academia, research, or renovation must get a master's degree. This graduate degree with specialisation will help them hone their knowledge and skills in controlling diseases and enhancing community health. The curriculum will include courses in motor control, pain management, and courses unique to the specialty selected, such as Advanced Musculoskeletal Assessment and Management or Advanced Neurological Assessment and Management given by industry experts.

Our curriculum, which is specifically created for physiotherapists, is ideal for physiotherapists who are keen to acquire a critical awareness of the major challenges within the field of physiotherapy.

The necessary groundwork for physiotherapy practise should have been established through the undergraduate coursework, clinical placement, and work experience. With the most recent research and best practises in clinical care, this programme will test every clinical practise in every setting. Therefore, earning a master's degree will pay you in terms of personal satisfaction, improved benefits due to enhanced employability, and higher patient satisfaction scores.
