Why Advanced Diploma in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine?

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that works with people to identify and maximize their ability to move and function – an essential part of what it means to be healthy.

Becoming a physiotherapist means you can play a key role in enabling people to improve their health, wellbeing and quality of life. Many physiotherapists work within hospitals. Here they are needed in virtually every department, from general out-patients to intensive care, where round-the-clock chest physiotherapy can be vital to keep unconscious patients breathing.
