    Michale Chandler

    Bachelor of Physiotherapy

    I graduated from JCU with my Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2017. I really enjoyed my placements while studying, some of which were really interesting, like the Acute Neurology Rehabilitation Ward at Townsville Hospital, and the Surgical Ward at the Cairns Base Hospital. Eventually, I would like to start my own practice

    Jade Bidgood

    Graduate, Bachelor of Physiotherapy

    JCU gave me the foundation of skills I required to feel confident to work in the health-care industry. I had multiple job offers in my final year and was fortunate to secure an excellent physiotherapy position from one of the clinical placements I attended during my training.

    Dr Anne Jones

    Head of Physiotherapy

    JCU physio students get to do a lot of practical work right from day one, and we build on those skills throughout the whole program. We have a major focus on rural and remote populations as well as the tropical environment. Therefore, you’ll gain a lot of experience that people in larger centres don’t get.
