The degree

The International Degree in Physiotherapy is taught jointly by the University School of Health and Sport (EUSES-UdG), a learning centre affiliated with the University of Girona and the School of New Interactive Technologies (ENTI-UB), affiliated with the University of Barcelona. The classes are held in the Bellvitge Health Campus, one of the benchmarks in clinical research in Catalonia.

OBJECTIVES OF THE GRADE

The aim of the International Degree in Physiotherapy is to train professionals in the field of prevention and treatment of injuries and pathologies associated with movements, based on teaching methods that familiarise students with work activity and teamwork. EUSES underscores training adapted to the needs of today’s society through learning aimed at the assessment, diagnosis, design and development of physiotherapy treatments.

The classes are taught entirely in English, thus making them the only university studies of physiotherapy in Catalonia 100% in English. The combined efforts of the two schools enable the latest existing technologies to be integrated into the world of physiotherapy.

With comprehensive preparation in the digital future, this multidisciplinary training in International Degree in Physiotherapy follows the learning by doing methodology, through highly practical classes, acting upon the areas of geriatrics, rehabilitation, cardiorespiratory, paediatrics, neurology, traumatology and sports injuries.

NEW TECHNOLOGIES

The new technologies today have an increasing presence in all areas of health, as well as in physiotherapy. That is why the International Degree in Physiotherapy is a frontrunner and is very focused on the adaptation of technological tools to develop innovative treatments which also improve the effectiveness of the diagnoses and the patients’ therapeutic results.

The student will be able to design and develop interactive computer tools and applications for mobile devices to supplement his/her work as a physiotherapist, encompassing all areas of activity – evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.

The joint efforts of the School of New Interactive Technologies (ENTI-UB) and the University of the Videogame and of the Serious Games enable us to carry out collaborative projects to prepare students are prepared for the digital future.
