It has been increasingly difficult to obtain formal work experience shadowing Physiotherapist in NHS hospitals and medical settings due to the sensitivity of confidential medical consultations. Universities will be looking for a broad knowledge base and understanding of all the different areas Physiotherapists work in, such as elderly care, sports, paediatrics and cancer care. If you would like to arrange further work experience, you can start by contacting: -
- Sports club physiotherapists- often reached by emailing the club.
- Special needs schools and units for disabled children and adults.
- Voluntary work with charities in your local area such as Parkinson’s UK, MS Society, Age UK, Stroke charities or brain injury charities.
- local residential homes
