These sessions include both theory and practical skills with an emphasis on clinical reasoning and problem solving.

Further learning and teaching on the practice module occurs in the clinical setting under the guidance of a clinical mentor. Students require access to an appropriate clinical caseload in order to be able to undertake the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Practice modules.

The musculoskeletal modules in Bradford have been developed in conjunction with specialist clinicians working in hospitals within the region, thus ensuring the continued clinical relevance of the programme.

A further strength of the programme is the use of external lecturers who are specialists within their field and continue to have a clinical caseload.

We are able to offer a limited number of Overseas students the required clinical caseload within the University's Physiotherapy Clinic.
