Entry requirements

The Doctor of Physiotherapy program at the University of Melbourne is available only to those applicants who have successfully completed an undergraduate degree in the last 10 years or are in the final year of completing an undergraduate degree.

To be considered for admission into this program, a Canadian applicant must

  • have completed an undergraduate degree and prerequisite subjects. Prerequisite subjects include one semester of human anatomy and one semester of human physiology.
  • participate in a multi-mini interview. Selected applicants will be shortlisted to participate in a multi-mini interview (MMI) to assess interest in and motivation for undertaking the program, likely capacity for establishing and maintaining rapport with patients in a clinical setting, communication skills, and aptitude for collaboration and decision making. The University of Melbourne has advised that international applicants will likely complete a MMI via video conferencing or phone.

Selection will be based on academic record (grade point average–GPA) from a completed three- or four-year university degree. The Selection Committee will also conduct interviews. To be competitive, it is anticipated that applicants will have achieved a standard of at least 70% or higher GPA in their undergraduate degree.

An applicant’s GPA results will be measured by considering the last three years of the applicant’s undergraduate coursework studies (including Honours). Weightings will be applied according to the approved Melbourne Adjusted Grade Point Average (MAGPA) calculations in force in any given year, or in the absence of any defined MAGPA, by weighting the first of the final three full-time years by 1, the second year by 2, and the final year by 3.

Offers of admission will be made from a combined ranking list where a candidate’s GPA and interview results are given equal weightings.

Apply to the University of Melbourne Physiotherapy School!

Melbourne Doctor of Physiotherapy application deadline is approaching

This is just a reminder for all students interested in studying physiotherapy at the Melbourne Physiotherapy School: the deadline for first round applicants is next Friday, June 7. OzTREKK encourages all applicants wishing to be considered as a first-round applicant to submit all of their application documents to the OzTREKK office prior to this date in order for their application to be submitted to the University of Melbourne on time.

Why is the Melbourne Doctor of Physiotherapy 3 years in length?

The Doctor of Physiotherapy commenced in 2011 at the University of Melbourne and is the first three-year physiotherapy graduate-entry master’s-level program, providing a benchmark for physiotherapy education in Australia. In addition to core hands-on practical physiotherapy skills, key program features include advanced theoretical knowledge in areas such as pharmacology, radiology, leadership and management, sports physiotherapy and inter-professional education, including a faculty student conference. Students will be well prepared for the changing roles of the physiotherapist in areas such as acute care, chronic disease management, health promotion, emergency medicine, private practice and sports medicine. The course provides a vertically integrated community group health promotion project that culminates in a presentation and possible publication at the end of three years of study. The clinical program builds progressively to independent practice, with approximately 37 weeks of clinical practice. There is also the potential for an overseas clinical experience to add depth of understanding in global health care.

New Dean of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne

Leading international medical researcher Professor Stephen Smith has been appointed Dean of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne.

Currently Vice-President (Research) at Nanyang Technological University, Professor Smith was also founding dean of the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, a joint initiative of Nanyang Technological University and Imperial College London set to open in August this year.

Professor Smith led the establishment of the first Academic Health Science Centre in the UK while Principal of the Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College London and then served simultaneously for four years as Chief Executive of the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.

He has been a pioneer in developing integrated health and research strategies at a number of leading British medical institutions, including Cambridge University where he was Professor and Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

He is a Fellow of the Institute of Biology, the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Society of Arts. In 2009 Professor Smith was ranked among the top 30 most powerful people in National Health Service management policy and practice in England. Professor Smith holds an MBBS, MD and a DSc from the University of London respectively. He also holds an MA from the University of Cambridge.

University of Melbourne Provost, Professor Margaret Sheil said she was delighted to have someone of Professor Smith’s calibre leading the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.

“Stephen brings great international experience in the medical sphere and a commitment to lead in a dynamic learning and teaching environment,” she said.

“This is a fantastic appointment for the university and for medical research and education in Australia. Professor Smith was a pioneer of the concept of academic health science centres in the UK and brings with him a wealth of expertise as we seek to build on that concept in the Australian context.”

Professor Smith says he is “looking forward to the opportunity to lead the world-class faculty at Melbourne and work with the university and surrounding hospitals and institutes in the next phase of some very exciting developments.”

Professor Smith will start at the University of Melbourne in September. He succeeds Professor James Angus AO who is retiring after nearly a decade leading the faculty. Professor Sheil said Professor Angus would leave an impressive legacy as Dean.
