Work experience

Here at Sports Treatment we are pleased to offer work experience placements to students wanting to further their studies in physical therapies. Sharing knowledge is a good thing and every therapist has to start somewhere!

If you are a student you have probably already realised that finding a clinic or hospital to take you on as a student can be very difficult. No doubt you will have already emailed a few private clinics, only to be faced with being ignored, or a reply to say that you are not suitable. The reality is, why would a clinic offer you work experience? What benefit is it to the clinic? Some see it as just hassle for the provider, and that’s not great for you.

Sports Treatment is a small privately run clinic, and we only have the facility to accept one student at a time for prolonged work placements. We will personally answer all requests received from students though – we won’t ignore you. The criteria used for accepting students is that you are studying on a degree level course in a discipline of evidence-based physical therapy, i.e. Sports Therapy, physiotherapy, osteopathy.

But we are not academic snobs! For example if someone wants further insight into what Sports Therapy covers; or maybe you are considering a career in physical therapy, but are unsure which direction of study to take? Then we will be pleased to arrange an open morning or afternoon for you.

Here is what a recent student said about her work placement with us:

“I would like to thank you for letting me complete my work placement with you. You have taught me so much that I haven’t learnt at university and I really appreciate this.”
