    Hi all!

    It was decided that it would be good to have some physio students "blogging" on this site to give people first hand information about what its like to study at certain uni's. Although they all teach the same course, each uni runs Physio in its own specific way and as a result the percentage of teaching, placement, placements etc can vary from place to place.

    Below is a list of people who have kindly volunteered to blog for you all, along with links to the individual threads they can be found posting in, along with what year they are in at which uni.

    If you're interested in joining the blog, PM me or post here and let me know which uni you are at and what year (you must be a current student) and I'll sort you out a thread of your own. And if you wish to be taken off then let me know too.

    Links to threads can be found in here, as that way they can still be found if even if the threads are lost from the page!

    To those that volunteered to blog, please try and do it as often as you can. Let people know what freshers was like, what halls are like, how your exams went, how you're finding the workload etc. Try and fill it with all the information you wish you had been given when you were applying!

    Remember, this is a PUBLIC forum so at times you may have to be careful what you write..................if you write about placement or staff or students you should never really mention them by their first names...............and DEFINITELY not for any patients you encounter while you're on placement. Do NOT give out identifiable information about patient's and their conditions..........you'll be the ones in trouble if you do............so be careful about what you post.

    Hi. I'm on this area and I just want to know if an physio student can give some pain treatment. I think that they don't have the right to do this but me friends think that they can do anything. Can you clear us up? Thanks.

    I'm not sure exactly what your question is? And your link isn't very helpful either......

    nope. You're supposed to direct your patients to their Gp if you think they need new medication or alteration of currernt medication

    I love the blogs! But.. that's about the sum of it from me lol. Even though I'm not going to do physio I find healthcare blogs in general really interesting.

    I want to start a radiography one in September

    To all bloggers and blog readers! It has recently come to my attention that university lecturer from a particular university (and therefore probably others!) are aware of and may have been reading the Physio blogs on this site....now this is not a problem as obviously we want people to read them!
    But as a result I would like to remind people about how what they post on this site in a blog can be used by your university in both a positive and negative way and could be used against you in a disciplinary proceeding. Whilst your blogs are your own thoughts and feelings I would advise you to be very careful about what/who you write about so that you do not get yourself into trouble. We have had positive feedback about the blogs themselves so their presence is not currently a issue but may become one should people not continue to be careful.

    You should be particularly careful when writing about placements. Writing about patients and trusts on your blog does constitute a breach of confidentiality so I advise you to be sensitive about what you write and provide no identifiable information about your patients or the trust you are on placement with. Posts going against this rule will be removed by the moderators.

    All in all, keep up the good work. The feedback so far has been good and potential students continue to enjoy what you all have to say. Lets keep it that way

    No blog from a Kings student? . . . does that mean the course is difficult and busy?! Would love to hear about how it is to study physio at Kings, just got a conditional offer x

    PS. Georges is awesome, and the blogs are great!

    Any news on an offer Activeroo? George's is usually pretty quick with them - my offer was on UCAS and the mail telling me about it from UCAS came the day after, so check track!

    Wish we did have a King's blog - would be interesting to compare. One of my mates at George's has a friend from his access course at King's - general feeling is that it's theory biased. George's does theory but mixes it well with practical. I'm sure it's still a good course though

    Nothing yet iainmacn. I obviously baffled them and they can't decide whether I'm worth it or not! It could go either way, if I do get an offer I'll be thrilled tho... (and very confused, because I'm a terrible decision maker). Aren't you on placement at the mo? x

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any Physio's at uni who do appointments? Or any recommendations in the Waterloo/London Bridge area? Nothing overly expensive though!?

    I play hockey and have done something to the top of my leg. I've been resting it for about 3 weeks now, but it seems to have got worse and my lower back is hurting.

    Hope you can help!
