PT Education – Designing a Curriculum for the Future #Physiotalk Mon 4th Feb 20.30 GMT

In many different forums we hear about how the PT entry to practice curriculum needs to look different if we are to prepare graduates of and for the future. What would the curriculum look like if we had a blank sheet of paper and used blue sky thinking? This Tweetchat seeks to start that conversation.

What should the curriculum look like? What themes should we consider? What’s not in current curricula? What could be taken out?

At this stage, we want to keep the thinking high-level and not worry too much about the ‘how’.

Join us at 8.30pm GMT on Monday 4th February with our hosts @ekstokes @JHaleATX and @JeremyLewisPT as we start this fascinating and exciting conversation to start to change the face of PT education.

  • How do we future proof the programs?
