    Hey guys, I'm hoping to apply for physiotherapy in a few months time and will have had about 12 work experience placements (6 NHS hospitals, 5 private practices and 1 hospice). They have all been in either neurology, cardio-respiratory, paediatrics and MSK outpatients.

    I'm wondering whether this may be sufficient and how much experience other applicants have gained?

    Thanks!

    It's more than enough. The trick is to relate what you found on the placements to physiotherapy key qualities and personal qualities. It's better to pick out a few experiences and expand on them; rather, than to just list experience. They want to know what you learnt. Good luck!

    My gosh that sounds likes loads! How long did you do them for? And yes I echo the bellow, much better to go in depth - although i'm sure you hand in your cv anyway so they know you've done a lot

    They varied between one day and one week - so not very long but hopefully enough to show a variety

    Thanks for your input!
