Welcome message from site

We hope you will join our team at Coastal for a unique hand therapy learning experience. This is an essential practical experience for any therapist wanting to pursue a post-graduate career in hand therapy. It's also a great way to expand your knowledge in a practice area that is limited in your training at university and see a unique approach to upper extremity care.

The placement will be a 1:1 learning environment. The caseload of patients will be shared with the supervisor. There will be lots of direct supervision.
