Graduate Certificate in Clinical Physiotherapy


Here is a brief summary of the Graduate Certificate course in Clinical Physiotherapy, Curtin University in Australia. This should be great for foreign trained physiotherapists who want to either major in Women's health or Musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

I also think this should give you a comprehensive orientation of how the Australian health care system works and how to work as a physiotherapist in Australia.


This is a 6Month full time course (Part time also available) where you can choose to either major in "Continence and Women’s health" or Musculoskeletal physiotherapy.



Continence and Women's Health
This major will provide you with the opportunity to become an expert clinician in women's health physiotherapy and its related areas of practice. In this major you will develop clinical skills in the assessment and management of conditions which are unique, common or serious to women, or require special interventions in women.
You will develop particular expertise in the management of pelvic floor dysfunction and its presentations, including bladder and bowel dysfunction, disorders of the pelvic organ and pelvic girdle support, sexual dysfunction and pelvic pain.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy
The Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy major is designed to enhance knowledge, skill and clinical competencies in muscoloskeletal physiotherapy practice.
In this major you can learn: advanced examination and treatment, advanced patient management and clinical communication skills through evidence-based practice and contemporary clinical practice methods.
