This unit of study involves clinical placements in one of the following areas: rehabilitation, acute care, ambulatory/outpatients, community health and an elective unit such as paediatrics, private practice, burns or hand therapy. Students will be required to demonstrate competence in the specific clinical skills for each area as well as the generic skills and attributes of physiotherapy professionals. During practicum placements there will be opportunities for interprofessional learning. In addition, students will be responsible for individual and group training sessions such as strength and fitness programs. Physiotherapy Practicums A, B, C, D, E are all five week placements which require full attendance (37 hours per week) at clinical facilities. In addition, at least one of the placements will be in a rural or regional setting.
