About

The Veterinary Physiotherapy programme at Harper Adams University is another example of collaboration, this time with the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP). Delivery is provided by colleagues from Harper Adams, technical specialists who are members of NAVP and also specialist external academics.

Overview

The Veterinary Physiotherapy programme at Harper Adams University fulfils the need to support veterinary surgeons who treat both companion and large animals. The veterinary physiotherapist (VP) can provide this support during an animal’s recovery from injury or surgery as well as in preparation of the athletic animal. Considering the number of animals owned and cared for in the UK and a general wish for high standards of animal health and welfare, there is now a growing need for well-educated and highly qualified, accredited VPs to provide this sort of service.

This programme is delivered on a part-time basis and studied over three academic years, with students completing the taught modules of the PgD within the first two years and completing the Masters Research Project within an individually negotiated timescale over one to two years.

Careers

There are many career opportunities available to the qualified VP such as direct or self-employment within a veterinary practice, teaching and research positions in academic institutions and also within the growing sector of sports performance development. Currently, this is a growing young profession and there are many opportunities to develop a future career in the field of animal health.
