Summary

This course was established to fulfill societal and market demand on physiotherapy profession. Currently, only limited numbers of higher education institutions in Malaysia are offering this course and UTAR will be one of the pioneer academic institutions to offer such a programme. It is envisaged that this course would produce graduates who would help fulfill UTAR's vision and mission. The programme aims to provide the educational experience, practical training and technical competence necessary for the practice of physiotherapy; prepare graduates to work as physiotherapists who are professionally competent and who demonstrate good ethical judgment and compassion in the treatment of patients; train students to develop good communication skills, critical thinking, leadership quality, ability to make independent clinical decision, and to engage in continual professional development as part of life-long learning. Graduates will help alleviate the current national shortage of qualified graduate physiotherapists, and be the trainers for future generation of physiotherapists. Graduates will be eligible for registration with the Malaysian Physiotherapy Association (MPA). Graduates can expect to find national or overseas employment as physiotherapist in various health sectors such as hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, geriatric care centres, physiotherapy clinic, community settings, health and fitness clubs, education and research etc. Graduates may also apply for post-graduate education locally or internationally at institutes of higher education.
