Improving the health and quality of life of the people of the world is a high level aim identified by the WCPT for the profession of physical therapy / physiotherapy. The concept of Global Health provides the perspectives and tools necessary to ensure the activities of the profession are optimised in order to strive most effectively towards this goal. This comprehensive programme of online courses will examine the emergence of the global health discipline and explore how this perspective is relevant to the profession as a whole and is also relevant to each of us in our daily practice as individual clinicians.


The aim of this programme of courses is to develop and consolidate your knowledge of the term global health and the meaning of this term to health care practice in all contexts and in particular in relation to physiotherapy.


This programme consists of four separate online courses and a written assignment:

  • Introduction to Global Health
  • Trends and Challenges in Global Health
  • Governance, Health Systems & the Role of the Physiotherapist
  • Meeting Future Global Health Needs
