Trinity College Dublin

Bachelor in Science (Physiotherapy)

The aims of this one-year programme are to: develop skills in critical analysis and evidence based practice, provide an in-depth understanding of global health issues and how physiotherapy can address the many challenges in healthcare delivery. The one-year programme includes five modules in the following areas: Critical Appraisal and Evidence Based Practice, Advanced Exercise Prescription, Global Health and Service Development, Leadership and Management in Physiotherapy and Advances in Physiotherapy Practice.

The aspiration is that this course will lead to independent practitioners who can initiate, drive and evaluate the services required for the future health system in Singapore. These include: Primary/Community Care, Long-term/Extended Care and Rehabilitation Services - all of which are in the process of being developed and there is a need for a skilled workforce who can lead, deliver and evaluate services in these areas.
