Clinical placements will be an integral part of the physiotherapy course and will enable you to gain relevant ‘hands on’ training in a clinical setting, link theory to practice in a meaningful way and apply the skills you have acquired at UTS to the treatment of real patients.

Our integrated clinical placements will ensure you gain a breadth of physiotherapy experience in a broad range of settings addressing issues across the lifespan. You will complete 700 hours of clinical placement over the two-year program, undertaken as four blocks, each full-time and of five weeks in duration. During placements you can expect to manage a diverse case load of patients under the guidance of a clinical supervisor and who will also be an experienced physiotherapist.

The UTS Master of Physiotherapy holds Australian Physiotherapy Council accreditation.
