Monash University Physiotherapy education is based on a fully integrated curriculum and includes interdisciplinary studies. Commencing Semester 1, the curriculum is structured around patient centred learning. Conditions for which people typically seek physiotherapy provide the context for integrating learning about biomedical sciences and physiotherapy skills. In the later years of the course, the focus moves from campus based patient scenarios to learning in a clinical environment. This provides opportunities for students to appreciate the relevance of on-going learning in the context of supervised health care delivery.

The Bachelor of Physiotherapy program at Monash University is a challenging and demanding course. Students can expect to spend significant time in self-directed learning that supports the course of study. Students will be expected to be fit to undertake the course by accepting responsibility to maintain their health and take adequate rest.

Monash Physiotherapy education facilitates development of skills through small group learning. Other features of this degree are opportunities to experience rural health care delivery and Inter-Professional Education (IPE). In IPE, students spend some time each semester learning and collaborating with students enrolled in other health science courses including Occupational Therapy, Nursing, Paramedic and Radiography.

Clinical attachments across all years of the course are compulsory. In the third and fourth years of study, the majority of time is spent in clinical education. Some flexibility may be required of students, both in terms of hours worked at clinics, and scheduling of clinical attachments.

Students can expect to have rural attachments during the course Students should take these matters into consideration when considering casual employment.

BPT students will complete 1 unit (24 credit points) in each Semester (1-4) over the first 2 years, and multiple units for campus study and clinical placements in years 3 and 4.
