    Masters in Physiotherapy: USA or UK?

    Add your physio job on Physiobob.com
    Hi, I want to do my masters degree in neurologic PT or pediatric PT but I'm very much confused to choose the university in UK or USA. My seniors told me that postgraduation in the other countries, which is a one and a half year degree is not valid in our country (according to IAP). Is this true? Is it good to do my masters in UK OR USA? Which is the best country to choose?

    Please help me. I'm very much confused.

    Re: Masters in Physiotherapy: USA or UK?

    No.

    I have heard that Marquette University is good and i just had a student from St Augustine who was good.

    Otherwise, Australia is the place to be for Musculoskeletal/Manual Therapy Physiotherapy. Canada is good too.

    I don't know about Neuro or Paeds though. Not my area.

    Good luck.

    Hmmm. I don't mind people being patriotic or even admiring but do you have a good reason why you think the USA is best for physios?

    Re: Masters in Physiotherapy: USA or UK?

    Hi,

    Again, listing the country is all fine but what are the specific reasons why?

    For musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy, Australia is an exceptional place to learn, especially about motor control. We have world leaders in Paul Hodges, Gwen Jull, Carolyn Richardson, Julie Hides, Peter O'Sullivan, not to mention world leaders in tendinopathy research and injury prevention rates to rival the world. Our lecutrers also tour the UK and US when visiting sporting teams to TEACH THEM our protocols because of our results.

    To simply claim the US or Canada are the best locations to be a proficient physio is not enough. Having said that, i don't think they are bad places to learn but choose carefully.

    I have met great physios from all over the world and i have met very poor physios from the same parts of the world...location is not the primary determinant of a proficient physio, it is the desire of the student who wishes to embark on a "lifetime of learning".

    Re: Masters in Physiotherapy: USA or UK?

    I agree with Alophysio. Australia is on top of er' game.

    Canada has its problems, low wages, low number of graduates, and many opting for better prospects and wages in the US leaves the country over qualified and underapprciating its physios.

    US, they have taken it a step further with the Doctors of PT programme, hopefully that will be strong and rival chiro and other less evidenced practices.

    Australia, whenever I read the research I have an inkling that some of the best research is coming out of Australia. In fact I know it is.

    Regards

    Re: Masters in Physiotherapy: USA or UK?

    The top universities in Australia are (in no particular order...

    . University of Western Australia - Centre for Musculoskeletal Studies

    . University of Queensland - The University of Queensland, Australia

    . Curtin University - Curtin University of Technology Australia

    They are the best. There are others. Melbourne and Adelaide aren't too bad. Sydney doesn't have a good reputation...just look at their research

    Re: Masters in Physiotherapy: USA or UK?

    Where are you planning to practice after you graduate?

    I have found that the US programs are not as readily accepted here in Australia, whereas you can get some benefits (in trying to get australian license) if you have trained in Canada or UK. For example, I think you can get a temporary license in Western Australian quite easily if you graduated from a program in Canada or UK, though I'm not sure if that will still apply to new grads. Just something to think about.

    Re: Masters in Physiotherapy: USA or UK?

    Not hard to get a job in Australia - just make sure your communication skills are up to scratch.

    Without being offensive, many people in Australia don't like Indian accents simply because we get so many calls from Indian cold callers trying to sell us things...

    ...so there may be an inherent prejudice there.

    Australian Masters degrees are well regarded arouind the world - check out the courses above - Curtin and Uni of QLD have sports masters degrees. Melbourne is also good for sports.

    Good luck

    BTW - forget Sports!!! Become a musculoskeletal physio and learn the sports stuff on the job!!! I have found that a mSk graduate has more breadth of knowledge in treating problems than a sports graduate - but that is a personal, limited opinion. Thanks

    Add your physio job on Physiobob.com
    Hi,
    the 2-year MSc pre-reg is a Masters degree for students who have already completed a Bachelor programme but would like to "change' profession to become a Physio.
    The MSc pre-reg Physio is therefore a baseline Physiotherapy degree. It is accelerated because the Bachelor degree that forms the basis of this Masters programme is considered to include elements similar to those being taught in Physio (e.g. BSc in Physiology). Not every Bachelor programme gives you entry for the MSc pre-reg Physio. And sometimes, there the Bachelor programme has to have occured in a certain period before starting the pre-reg programme (e.g. BSc must not be older than 5 years).

    A general MSc Physio is a Master's programme for students who have already completed a BSc Physio - it serves the purpose of Specialisation, e.g. MSc in Musculoskeletal Physio or Neuro Physio or .....

    Does this make it any clearer?
    cheers,
    Fyzzio
