The surging demand for physiotherapy andthe lacking behind of manpower supply of registered physiotherapists hassignificant impact on the professional and service development of physiotherapyin Hong Kong.
Following the self-financed Physiotherapytraining programs launched by the Tung Wah College in 2018, the Open Universityof Hong Kong and the Caritas Institute of Higher Education are going to launchself-financed BSc (PT) programs concurrently in Fall 2020.
