    Contents of the BSc in Physiotherapy.

    The programme is divided into three levels which combine and integrate theory with clinical practice. The first stage is essentially University based with a five week introductory clinical placement at the end of the first year. The second and third stages consist of alternate periods within the University and the clinical environment. The importance attached to interprofessional education is underlined by the inclusion of three modules, one at each level (year), which stress the value of an integrated, holistic approach to patient/client management.
