Physiotherapy is a discipline that focuses on the function and mobility of the human body, which affects the overall well-being and health of the individual. A physiotherapist works as a member of the healthcare team treating clients that may range from small babies to the frail elderly. Their primary role and function is to help patients resolve pain experienced by them and stabilize improve the condition of the injury that affects movement and prevent it from getting worse. Physiotherapists are trained to formulate a physiotherapy diagnosis and carry out treatment to restore optimum movement and functional abilities of the patient, therapy improving their quality of life.
Our Physiotherapy Program encompasses comprehensive learning experience with emphasis on “hands on” practice. Clinical placements at our network of hospitals, such as Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC), are apart of the students training specially designed to meet and exceed the 1000 hours service requirement stipulated by the World Confederation of Physiotherapy.
Our students’ clinical training is supervised and guided by a qualified senior Physiotherapist. The aim for such an arrangement is to create competent and confident graduates exposed to the real working environment allowing them to provide customer-focused care using evidence-based techniques. The students learn to treat patients holistically while minimizing risks, ensure patient safety at all times, and work within a legal and ethical framework.
