Student conference

‘I’ve enjoyed learning about patient population groups, which was not necessarily covered at university. I’ve learned about vestibular research, veterinary physios and the impact of urinary incontinence in rugby players – groups that I’ve not have any experience with.’
Jenny Conway, University of Nottingham, BSc physiotherapy, graduated 2023

1136 in-person delegates, 723 online delegates, 233 speakers

‘One thing that will apply to me is how I can bring different scenarios into my own practice. So, from the paediatrics talk learning the importance of getting the bigger picture from families and using different communication styles too.’
Jasmine Kasprzyk – University of Nottingham sport rehabilitation, graduated 2023

‘My main takeaway was learning about how broad the profession is, hearing all the different voices, from veterinary to cancer. This made me realise where I can go, once I’ve done my rotations. I didn’t realise how many specialisms there were before the conference.’
George Alvey, University of Birmingham, MSc physiotherapy (pre-registration), final year


261 posters, 382 abstracts, 50+ hours of online content

‘Absolutely brilliant to see Nicola Dowdeswell deliver her presentation at #Physio23 on the “My Life” programme. Supervised physical activity in a community leisure centre, such important work addressing health inequalities, reducing stigma and isolation.’
