Sports Physiotherapy Exposure And Rehabilitation (SPEAR) Programme

The SPEAR programme serves to provide pre-season assessment, in-season rehabilitation and post-season management for the HKMU sports team. HKMU Physiotherapy students have the opportunity to attach to this programme and gain an early exposure experience in the Sports Physiotherapy field. They can observe and interact with athletes through the activities, which also help build a strong basis for later learning.

Paediatric Attachment Activity

Our Physiotherapy Department has established collaboration services with a local NGO, Heep Hong Society. Students in HKMU Physiotherapy programme benefit from attaching paediatric training sessions led by our academic staff, with cases provided by Child Development Centre under Heep Hong Society at IOH.

Howard, HKMU Physiotherapy student

I was impressed by how a physiotherapist utilised a variety of assessments to determine the patient’s functional ability, as well as integrating fun play throughout the session to maintain patient’s engagement. Apart from accurate assessment, effective communication is also important. Assessment is a complex and ongoing process, and truly begins as soon as the patient walks through the door. I truly appreciate this opportunity, and would highly recommend it!
