Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional and mental status

Physiotherapy is an exciting profession that greatly impacts on people’s lives. Physiotherapists are highly qualified health professionals who work in partnership with their clients to get them better and to stay well.

Using advanced techniques and evidence-based care, physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders. They do this by assisting to repair damage, reduce stiffness and pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life.

Physiotherapy extends from health promotion to injury prevention, acute care, rehabilitation, maintenance of mobility, chronic disease management, client and carer education and occupational health.

Study physiotherapy at Griffith

Studying the 4-year Bachelor of Physiotherapy at Griffith will transform your life. You’ll study physiotherapy courses from your first trimester to develop your professional identity.

You'll study in inter-professional teams with other health students to ensure that you develop teamwork skills so that you are work-ready. Studying in small class sizes and using the latest evidence-based teaching techniques such as simulation, you'll be well prepared for over 20 weeks of hands-on practice work experience.

You'll be taught by clinical, research and academic experts using student-centred and active learning approaches. While you're developing leadership skills, you'll join a global community of physiotherapists.

As a Griffith Physiotherapy graduate, you'll be well prepared for where the profession is going rather than where it's been.

Luke Licht

Physiotherapy graduate

The road to becoming a physiotherapist has been a long one for Luke Licht, but he has always been focused on what he wanted. Being from Tasmania, Australian Football League (AFL) was a passion and he used his Bachelor of Exercise Science/Master of Physiotherapy degree and personal drive to land a job with the Brisbane Lions before graduating. 'I found the exercise science part of the degree really hard, but I've come to understand the importance of having that background in giving me more confidence to talk the talk as a therapist,' he says. 'The professional placements and education at Griffith has set me up to do exactly what I always wanted.'
