On this post, I’ll list out Physiotherapy courses and courses related to Physiotherapy which will benefit students who do not wish to study Physiotherapy course itself. I know for certain that there are two category students reading this and I will try to make sure I answer both categories.

As mentioned earlier, some of you are reading this to know courses similar or related to Physiotherapy while others want to know Physiotherapy course outlines. That is, Physiotherapy courses (subjects) you will learn at the university.
Firstly, let me address courses that are related to Physiotherapy. Students who study any of the related course below can work with a medical firm. Remember, Physiotherapy in itself is a course you can study, albeit a good one with competitive job opportunities.

If you study any of these courses related to Physiotherapy as listed below, you set yourself aside from the crowd because unlike Physiotherapy which is encompassing, these courses are focused area within the field of medicine;

  • Anatomy
  • Pharmacology and Therapeutics
