Course summary

This programme fulfils the need to support veterinary surgeons that treat both companion and large animals. The veterinary physiotherapist (VP) can provide this support during an animal’s recovery from injury or surgery as well as in preparation of the athletic animal. Considering the number of animals owned and cared for in the UK and a general wish for high standards of animal health and welfare, there is now a growing need for well-educated and highly qualified, accredited VPs to provide this sort of service. Veterinary physiotherapy is now well established as a mainstream complimentary treatment and offers the opportunity to become part of a growing professional community. Successful completion of this programme will provide individuals with more extensive opportunities for graduate employment as a VP in the animal health sector by developing the specific scientific, technical and business skills required. On successful completion, students will gain a recognised Higher Education postgraduate qualification as well as being able to apply for professional membership to NAVP, which is recognised by both practising veterinary surgeons and lead sector insurers as valid providers of specialist veterinary physiotherapy. There are many career opportunities available to the qualified VP such as direct or self-employment within a veterinary practice, teaching and research positions in academic institutions and also within the growing sector of sports performance development. Currently, this is a growing young profession and there are many opportunities to develop a future career in the field of animal health. Students will also achieve PgDip awards in this course.
