Nottingham’s Vet School launches MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy

A new master’s degree is being launched by the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Nottingham. From September 2018, the university will
be offering an MSc Veterinary Physiotherapy course over
three years, with the option of receiving a PGDip Veterinary
Physiotherapy after two years. Graduates will be able to
practise as veterinary physiotherapists with either.

The course will be delivered at the University’s
Sutton Bonington campus at weekends and will be led
by Dr Richard Payne, assistant professor of veterinary
anatomy. The course was developed by Canine and
Equine Physiotherapy Training, but is being transferred to
Nottingham due to an increasing number of applicants.
Much of the practical teaching will be delivered by qualified
veterinary physiotherapists, both on campus and at their
own practices. Students will be qualified as veterinary
physiotherapists after two years; the third year for the
MSc will revolve around research for a dissertation.
Students can expect to come away with a range of practical
skills such as physiotherapy, electrotherapy and exercise
