This course has been designed to provide physiotherapists with deeper understanding and knowledge of English and to help build technical vocabulary related to their field. Our principal goal is to assist physiotherapists to communicate effectively and accurately through English in their working lives.
Dedicated sessions will be provided which will cover the key terminology used for the assessment, treatment and prevention of physical disfunction. There will be interactive sessions focused on concepts, principles and theories of current physiotherapy practice and on the researches that underpin physiotherapy practice.
Interactive physiotherapy sessions using the fully equipped clinical skills laboratories available at University of Malta will focus on current physiotherapy techniques, anatomy, pathology and patient communication.
In our fully equipped clinical skills laboratories you will also benefit from clinical teaching in small groups, where you will acquire skills under the tuition of highly qualified staff.
Published peer-reviewed journal articles will be reviewed in order to familiarise participants with the language used.
A glossary of key terminology used will be provided for all participants along with associated activities. Finally a short translating test on key terminology will take place at the end of the programme.
