The School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science is one of the oldest learning centres in the Division of Health Sciences. Established in 1953, it was amalgamated with WAIT in 1967. Over the years, the science and practice of physiotherapy has developed to the extent that in 1993, the school graduated its first doctoral student. In July 2002, the School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science relocated from the Shenton Park campus to our new, custom-made building located on the main Bentley Campus. Our course in exercise, sports and rehabilitation science commenced in 2012.
