Physiotherapy education has a core element of clinical education based historically on intuition and what worked. The experiential learning model has persisted but is underpinned by little evidence-based research. An extensive literature review found little evidence for physiotherapy education. Two models that have received some scrutiny in the evidence-based literature are problem-based learning and simulator training. A model is presented with key elements of the use of simulation where realism is maintained; experiential learning is conducted in a staged manner in a supportive environment, which is underpinned by classroom-based competency development.
