This new Physiotherapy (Pre-registration) course from Edinburgh Napier University is designed for graduates who wish to qualify as a Physiotherapist with eligibility for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) through an accelerated two-year route.
The course has been developed in collaboration with Occupational Therapy and Social Work programmes and will prepare you to work within the complex and rapidly evolving environment of health and social care.
Physiotherapy-specific modules will prepare you for clinical practice, through development of your theoretical understanding, critical thinking skills, and application of knowledge and skills to physiotherapy practice. The course will make use of scenario-based learning opportunities, simulation and will involve service users in teaching, learning and assessment, giving you ‘real-world’ experiences.
The course aims to develop Physiotherapists who are skilled in their own profession, with a strong professional identity and the ability to work in effective collaboration with other disciplines to put service-users at the centre of their care.
You’ll be enabled to work effectively in a range of settings from traditional environments to contemporary integrated health and social care teams, third sector organisations, private providers, performance sports or any other environment in which Physiotherapists commonly practice.
The programme has been validated by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
