Physiotherapy


History of the Department of Physiotherapy

The Department of Physiotherapy, Faculty of Clinical Sciences, College of Medicine, University of Lagos was established by Senate of the University on July 1, 1980. Prior to that date (that is from September 1971), the department had functioned as a unit under the Department of Paediatrics. Between 1971 and 1980, the programme of studies in Physiotherapy led to the award of a Diploma in Physiotherapy of the University of Lagos. With effect from July 1980 and witha new study duration of four years, the certificate obtainable on successful completion of the course of study became a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) degree in Physiotherapy.

In 1997, the curriculum was revised in order to meet with international standards as directed by the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT). Under this new curriculum, the certificate obtainable on successful
completion of a course of study in physiotherapy became a professional degree denoted as Bachelor of Physiotherapy (B. Physiotherapy). A new study duration of five years also took effect under the new curriculum for candidates admitted with GCE (Ordinary Level) / WASSCE. The first set of students under this 5-year programme completed their programme in August 2003. Currently the Department is upgrading its undergraduate curriculum to suit the Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT) programme in line with the need for harmonized entry level for physiotherapists as advocated by the WCPT.
