What is physiotherapy?
The University of New South Wales (UNSW) is launching a new physiotherapy degree program.
The new degree will allow students to study the history and development of physiotherapy in Australia and abroad.
The university says the course will help students understand the history of the profession, as well as its impact on Australia and its health.
The course will also offer a career opportunity for young people, and is the first of its kind in New South Welsh.
Professor Chris Cuthbert from the university’s Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering says it is a major milestone in the evolution of the university.
“It is exciting to be able to develop a degree program that will provide a unique pathway to be trained as a physiotherapist in Australia, and also in New Zealand, which is a very important country in terms of physiotherapies, to become part of a global network,” Professor Cuthberts Dr. Cuthbor said.
The program will offer up to 12 weeks of courses.
The courses will also include an internship, as part of the program.
“This is something that I think will be quite useful to people who are wanting to develop their careers in physiotherapy,” Professor Fergus said.
In the future, students will be able earn a Bachelor of Science in the subject, which will cover areas such as orthopaedics, pediatrics, physical therapy and neuromuscular therapy.
The Bachelor of Arts is a much more intensive degree program, but it will also provide additional training in nursing.
The degree program will begin in 2019 and is open to students in Australia.
The University has also announced a new training program for physiotherapeutic nurses.
The nursing program will open this summer and will include a one-year apprenticeship with a professional, with the intention of training a new nurse to become an accredited physiotheracist.
The newly established program is part of New Zealand’s Government’s ongoing support for health care workers.
