Course Description

MAHSA University’s Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Hons) is a 4-year undergraduate degree programme that prepares students for a career caring for and rehabilitating patients with neurological, cardiorespiratory, musculoskeletal or other debilitating conditions through the use of expert techniques to reduce pain, improve movement and restore muscle control to maximize mobility.

Students will immerse themselves in the study of functional anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, foundation of psychology, physiotherapy rehabilitation, clinical practice and health science research. They will also learn the use of physical manipulation of the anatomy to regulate muscles and nerves, the many exercises that can be performed for specific needs, and the uses of electrotherapy, ultrasound, acupuncture, and hydrotherapy in their rehabilitative efforts.

Upon completion of this programme, students will be qualified to

  • aid and rehabilitate patients with reduced mobility due to muscular, neurological, cardiovascular, or respiratory conditions.
  • diagnose and assess physiological problems and devise treatment plans to improve patients’ mobility.
  • reduce pain and discomfort in patients in their physiotherapeutic efforts; encourage and cheer patients and give them moral support.
  • give sound advice to patients and their families and educate them about the improvement of their situations and the prevention of unwelcome conditions.
  • promote patient health and well being.
  • write reports and maintain records of patients’ treatment and progress
  • manage clinical risks.

In other words, MAHSA’s Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Hons) graduate will be able to perform the demanding tasks expected of a highly qualified physiotherapis
