Physiotherapy is a scientific and evidence-based health profession that takes a 'whole person' approach to improving and maintaining wellbeing. Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness, or disability, using a range of interventions such as advice, education, exercise, and manual therapy and electrophysical agents.
MSc Contemporary Physiotherapy Practice at Lincoln aims to enhance currently qualified Physiotherapist's knowledge and skills through various teaching and learning methods to equip students for current clinical practice. This includes exploring topics such as clinical reasoning and decision making, pathoanatomic and physiology, interventions, research methodology and project management applicable to physiotherapy practice.
With an emphasis on applied theory, practical development, and improving service provision, the programme aims to enhance both practical and research skills through critical engagement with evidence-based strategies for clinical practice.
Students will also be encouraged to undertake analytical reflections based on their clinical practice to direct their own personal and professional development. Students will receive support from academics who have specialist knowledge and experience in the field.
