Learn in state-of-the-art skills labs
To enable allied health students to gain the necessary skills to practise and develop in their chosen career, much of the allied health learning takes place in a range of clinical or simulated environments. K2 houses a suite of modern skills laboratories such as Digital Imaging, VERT (virtual radiotherapy), Activity of Daily Living, Physiotherapy as well as an Acupuncture clinic.
In a recent review the department was commended for consistently seeking students' opinions and acting on what they say. As well as responding to its students the department is also recognised across the allied health sciences for developing innovative study programmes that reflect changes currently happening in the workplace. Its Foundation degrees in Diagnostic Imaging, Rehabilitation Therapy and Peri-operative Practice are clear examples of this. Other significant examples include post-graduate programmes in Musculoskeletal Management and Adult Cardiac Catheter Laboratory Practice.
