Course description

As a Physiotherapist, you will be able to combine an interest in scientific subjects and a passion for interpersonal relations through an educational approach that will encourage you to develop the ability to study and research, combined with sensitivity, manual skills and creativity. By becoming a Physiotherapist you will be able to use physical therapy to “treat” patients affected by movement dysfunctions, in order to improve the quality of their lives.

The programme's educational approach includes a grounding in biomedical science; medicine and surgery to study pathologies, clinical presentation and the main diagnostic methods; physiotherapy science to study physiological movements, movement alterations due to different pathologies and the complex recovery mechanisms. The job-oriented placement accounts for one-third of the programme and starts from the first year.

A degree in physiotherapy is currently very much in demand: Physiotherapists have a role in many different specialties (orthopaedics, neurology, cardio-respiratory medicine) and they provide their services to individuals of all ages, from paediatric to geriatric patients.

Lessons are held in Italian.
