Careers in physiotherapy
The physiotherapy program comprises a bachelor degree and a professional, graduate entry master's degree. Graduates will be eligible for registration as physiotherapists with the NSW Physiotherapists Registration Board.
Physiotherapy is a dynamic profession, and students have a vast array of career paths to consider upon graduation. In addition to the high-profile sports side of the occupation, physiotherapists also practise in roles that contribute significantly to the wider community. For instance, physiotherapy is applied in the management of a wide variety of conditions, including neurological illness such as stroke and Parkinson's disease, movement disorders in children, rehabilitation after major injury, and recovery following surgery. It also plays a central role in the management and prevention of chronic conditions such as asthma.
