Abstract

Louise Shaw’s In Our Hands: 100 Years of Physiotherapy at Otago 1913-2013 was published as part of the School of Physiotherapy’s centennial celebrations. Beginning with the story of the short-lived School of Massage at the University of Otago, the book traces the transformation of a modest training school at Dunedin Hospital into the internationally recognized New Zealand School of Physiotherapy. Following two decades as a department at the Otago Polytechnic the circle was completed in 1996 when the School of Physiotherapy was re-established at the University of Otago within the Division of Health Sciences. As New Zealand’s only training institution for physiotherapists until 1973, the book illustrates how education at Otago has played a central role in defining the physiotherapy profession.
