About

This Physiotherapy Studies - Musculoskeletal programme at University College London (UCL) integrates the advanced clinical, academic and research components of musculoskeletal physiotherapy practice. The emphasis is on the management of patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Flexibility in the selection of modules allows for physiotherapists with particular interests to be accommodated.

Overview

The programme offers students the opportunity to evaluate and challenge existing practice, develop and undertake clinical research and learn about new and emerging treatment options. Students will develop clinical skills and understanding of evidence-based practice in their field of specialisation through the completion of taught modules led by university staff with teaching also provided by a variety of external clinical experts.

This Physiotherapy Studies - Musculoskeletal programme at University College London (UCL) aims to transform the way you think about the theoretical foundation for musculoskeletal physiotherapy clinical practice and what defines expert patient care. The programme provides you with rigorous, evidence-based training in the best research and clinical practice, relevant to clinical, educational or research posts in physiotherapy.

Employability

The programme will enable you to pursue a career in academia or research or to pursue more senior clinical or management positions within your chosen career field.
